Esophageal location of bronchogenic cysts is rare especially if two cysts are present. We report such a case in a girl 17 years old who had several intramural esophageal smooth defects which looked like multiple leiomyomatosis of the esophagus. At surgery there were two bronchogenic cysts arising in the wall of the esophagus and lying on each side of the azygos arch.
