Image Focus 1075 Bronchogenic cysts are benign congenital mature teratomas that arise from abnormal buds of the primitive ventral foregut, during embryologic development, usually involving the tracheobronchial tree. Intracardiac bronchogenic cysts are extremely rare, and mostly asymptomatic, being detected incidentally, usually in the second to fourth decades. Several cases have been reported in adults, most often located at the level of the interatrial septum, but only few cases are described in children. We report an extremely rare case of intracardiac bronchogenic cyst, located at the level of the pars membranacea septi, and incidentally diagnosed due to arrhythmia. At the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of an intracardiac bronchogenic cyst associated with a VSD. (A) Transthoracic 2D echocardiography. Apical four-chamber view—an aneurysmal structure at the level of the IVS bulging into the RA (asterisk); (B) contrast-enhanced chest CT examination—an ovoid, irregular mass within the IVS and protruding into the RA, with mean attenuation value of 41 Hounsfield units (arrows); (C) contrast-enhanced chest CT examination—an ovoid, irregular mass of 4, 35/3, 84 cm in diameter; (D) round, multilocular cyst with gelatinous, fluid collection (haematoxylin–eosin colouration, 1); (E) pseudo-stratified ciliated secreting columnar epithelium, with interspersed goblet cells and focal squamous metaplasia, (haematoxylin–eosin colouration, 10); (F) immunohistochemical analyses of ciliated epithelium, positive for anti-cytokeratin (CK) 7 antibodies; (G) immunohistochemical analyses of ciliated epithelium, positive for, anti-thyroid transcription factor (TTF)-1 antibodies.
