Abstract Subcutaneous bronchogenic cysts in the scapular region are extremely rare entities, with only 17 cases reported so far in the literature. We present a case of a three year old boy who underwent an excision and drainage of what was preoperatively diagnosed as an abscess in the scapular region. Histological examination of the excised lesion showed a cystic space lined by respiratory epithelium with an inflammatory cell infiltrate, consistent with an inflamed bronchogenic cyst.
