A 65-year-old man presented with left abdominal pain. Abdominal US, CT, and MRI showed a 11 cm-sized retroperitoneal mass. Since a malignant tumor could not be ruled out, the patient underwent surgical resection of tumor. Microscopic examination revealed a thin layered muscular wall and a lining of ciliated pseudostratified columnar epithelium, and these findings were consistent with bronchogenic cyst. This is the 41st case to be reported in Japan.
