Esophageal lung is an extremely rare type of bronchopulmonary foregut malformation where a main stem bronchus anomalously arises from the esophagus instead of the trachea. Less than 20 cases have been reported, and most of these are in association with esophageal atresia. Most cases are treated with detachment of the esophageal bronchus with repair of the esophagus and resection of the hypoplastic lung. Described herein are the presentation, diagnostic workup, and management of 2 such cases of esophageal lung.
