The majority of patients with bronchogenic cyst are asymptomatic.

History and symptoms

The majority of patients with bronchogenic cyst are asymptomatic and are diagnosed during investigations for other pathologies.[1][2][3]

When symptomatic, clinical presentation of bronchogenic cyst depends on the age of the patient, size and the location of the cyst.[1][4]

In infants bronchogenic cyst presents with [5][6][7][4][8][9][10]

In children and adults, bronchogenic cyst presents with
