Bronchogenic cysts are rare congenital cystic lesion formed during the migration of embryonic primitive foregut buds during early embryogenesis. Although they are most commonly located in the mediastinum, in some rare cases, they are found localized in the periadrenal area. In our male patient in 22 year old who had no symptomps, a multiloculated bronchogenic cyst was detected incidentally in the periadrenal area. The lesion was located in the left adrenal area as observed using imaging techniques. The large mass was extracted by laparoscopy to confirm the diagnosis. Histopathological examination described the cyst as multilocular and bronchogenic. The case was presented to us because of the rare occurrence of bronchogenic cysts in the periadrenal area, and an accompanying ectopic kidney condition.
