In our article a retrospective research was performed from 1956 to 2012 using Pub Med, with the following keywords: bronchogenic cyst, stomach, and gastric.
Bronchogenic cysts (BCs) are a rare clinical entity because of anomalism of foregut in the embryonic stage. They have been described mostly within the mediastinum and are uncommon reported arising from the stomach. In this article, we report two cases of BC of stomach identified by pathological examination after surgical resection. It is extremely difficult to make a definitive diagnosis preoperatively just based on imaging findings. Surgical resection may be indicated if malignancy is suspected, or the cyst is enlarging or infected or causing symptoms.
