A child with a bronchogenic cyst is described who manifested clinical findings indicative of pulmonary arterial stenosis. Compression of the right pulmonary artery by the cyst with a significant pressure gradient between the proximal and distal segments of the right pulmonary artery was verified at surgery. The post-operative follow-up findings have confirmed relief of the stenosis with absence of the murmur originating from it. We have recently reported pulmonary arteriographic findings in a case of bronchogenic cyst confirming the single previously existing report by Selke et al. of pulmonary arterial compression and distortion by this entity. We now report a case of a child who had prominent cardiovascular findings which subsequently were proven due to external pulmonary arterial compression by a bronchogenic cyst.
