1/3. Complex bronchopulmonary foregut malformation: extralobar pulmonary sequestration associated with a duplication cyst of mixed bronchogenic and oesophageal type.

    We report a 13-year-old girl with an unusual, complex bronchopulmonary foregut malformation. The malformation included extralobar pulmonary sequestration and a duplication cyst of mixed bronchogenic and oesophageal type. Preoperative CT and MRI demonstrated the cystic and solid portions of the mass and indicated an aberrant vascular supply, suggesting the possibility of bronchopulmonary foregut malformation and several other differential diagnoses. A direct communication between the cyst and the bronchus of the sequestrated lung was found on pathological examination. This unusual combination of an extralobar pulmonary sequestration and a foregut cyst points to a common embryological pathogenesis.

2/3. Bronchopulmonary foregut malformation: a large bronchogenic cyst communicating with an esophageal duplication cyst.

    A 1-year-old boy with a bronchopulmonary foregut malformation presented with a large mediastinal bronchogenic cyst associated with pulmonary sequestration, a cervical esophageal duplication cyst, a bronchial communication between these cysts, and 2 small bronchogenic cysts around the communication. These lesions were resected followed by an uneventful recovery.

3/3. Extralobar pulmonary sequestration with an associated cyst of mixed bronchogenic and esophageal type--a case report.

    We report an unusual case of extralobar pulmonary sequestration (ELS) with an associated cyst of mixed bronchogenic and esophageal type. A 58-year-old woman was incidentally found to have a 6 x 6 x 5 cm sized mass in the right superior mediastinum. The mass consisted of sequestrated pulmonary tissue and an unilocular cyst with a direct communication. The cyst could not be easily classified because it was lined by squamous or respiratory epithelium with two distinct muscle layers and bronchial glands. Bronchial cartilage was present in close proximity to the ELS. This unusual combination of ELS with a foregut cyst might be a part of bronchopulmonary foregut malformation, attributed to a common embryologic pathogenesis.
