Congenital bronchogenic cysts of the lung and mediastinum develop from the ventral foregut during embryogenesis. Bronchogenic cysts are seldom seen in the adults and most are thought to be asymptomatic and free of complications unless they become infected or are large enough to cause pressure on contiguous vital structures such as the tracheal carina, the lung or the esophagus. We present the unique case of a 24-year-old man who developed respiratory symptoms after Salmonella enteritidis infected bronchogenic cyst following Salmonella gastroenteritis.
