Abstract
Neurenteric cyst is a rare bronchopulmonary foregut malformation, originating from notochord defect. Characteristics of this anomaly are the intrathoracic cyst associated with vertebral abnormalities, such as hemivertebrae, anterior and posterior spina bifida, absence of vertebrae and diastematomyelia. The most common symptom is respiratory distress and treatment is surgical excision of mass. We report a case of neurenteric cyst in a neonate presented with asymptomatic huge mediastinal cystic mass.
