A congenial cutaneous bronchogenic sinus of the abdominal wall in an infant

Abstract

Cutaneous bronchogenic anomalies are very rare, and we report a child who presented with mucoid discharge from a small opening on her epigastrium that was present since birth. Diagnosis and treatment of congenital bronchogenic anomalies are important because surgical excision is needed to prevent the potential risk of infection and malignant degeneration. To the best to our knowledge, this is the first report of a congenital bronchogenic sinus of the abdominal wall.
