Bronchogenic cyst arises from abnormal budding of the diverticulum of the foregut that leads to abnormality of the tracheobronquial tree. We report two cases of these cysts in children with respiratory chronic symptom. One was localized in paratraqueal mediastinum and other, intrapulmonary in lower upper right side. The chest radiography and computed tomography allowed evaluation as to the type, site and size of lesion as well as airway compression. Both patients underwent surgery; there were no complications and the respiratory symptoms disappeared. Histologic features confirm the diagnosis.
