Bronchogenic cyst is considered to be a benign morphological abnormality in the development of the primitive foregut, which usually occurs in the thorax, particularly in the mediastinum. Subdiaphragmatic and retroperitoneal locations in particular are unusual. It is usually asymptomatic. Clinical presentations are related to complicated forms (infection, haemorrhage and extrinsic compression). Imaging rarely contributes to the diagnosis. Only histopathological examination allows a definitive diagnosis of retroperitoneal bronchogenic cyst. Surgical resection is the therapeutic strategy of choice. We report a peculiar presentation of a symptomatic retroperitoneal bronchogenic cyst that can be confused with adrenal masses.
