Bronchogenic cyst localized in the retroperitoneum is a rare clinical entity. It is a congenital malformation generally occurring in the posterior mediastinum due to the abnormal development of the foregut. We report the case of a retroperitoneal cyst presenting as left adrenal cyst. A 38-year-old female presented with left upper abdominal pain. Endocrinological evaluation was done, and no adrenal hormonal secretion was detected. The cyst was removed laparoscopically. Pathologic examination confirmed it as a bronchogenic cyst. Therefore, bronchogenic cysts should be considered in the differential diagnosis of retroperitoneal cysts. Laparoscopic resection of retroperitoneal cysts results in favorable outcome.
