Bronchopulmonary foregut malformations are rare and often prove to be extremely difficult to diagnose. The presented case is a 44-year-old man complaining about cough and hemoptysis. These symptoms continued despite medical treatment. A computed thorax tomographic scan depicted a paravertebral cystic lesion. The patient underwent surgical exploration, and communication between the cyst and the esophagus was found. A left lower lobectomy was performed. The pathologic result confirmed a duplication cyst of mixed bronchogenic and esophageal type with bronchiectasis of the lower lobe. We present this unusual malformation complex especially in an adult with the review of the literature.
