Bronchogenic cysts (BCs) are uncommon congenital anomalies. Due to the inherent complications, the mere presence of a BC should warrant surgical therapy. Partial excision of these structures leads to recurrence. Complete surgical excision using a thoracotomy or video-assisted thoracic surgery is the goal. We report a case of recurrent bronchogenic pseudocyst 24 years after initial excision. This case supports the argument for complete surgical excision of BCs at the time of diagnosis.
