Bronchogenic cyst is congenital anomaly arising from the abnormal budding of the tracheobronchial tree during foregut maturation. The cyst is most commonly located in mediastinum and intraparenchymal region. Suprasternal region is considered as rare location for bronchogenic cyst to occur. Most of the cases of the cyst have been reported in male patient within paediatric age group. We report a 13-year-old female child with a swelling present over suprasternal region in midline since birth. Surgical excision was done and diagnosis was confirmed by histopathological examination.
