Gastric duplication cysts (GDC) lined by pseudostratified columnar ciliated epithelium (PCCE) are uncommon lesions stemming from a foregut developmental malformation. The clinical and radiological diagnosis is usually difficult. Definitive diagnosis can be established by histopathological examination. In this study, we report a rare case of a perigastric mass that was operated on; after treatment, it was reported as a bronchogenic cyst. Microscopically, the gastric cyst was lined by PCCE. Although rare, GDC lined by PCCE should be included in the differential diagnosis of gastric wall masses. Surgical intervention is permitted in patients who have clinical symptoms.

Keywords: Gastric duplication cyst, bronchogenic cyst, foregut, pseudostratified columnar ciliated epithelium
