Bronchogenic cysts are common congenital bronchopulmonary malformations that are thought to develop as a result of abnormal budding of the tracheal diverticulum during the embryonic period. A 39-year-old female patient underwent a right lower lobectomy with a right thoracotomy due to a giant intraparenchymal cyst in the lower lobe of the right lung. At the end of the 1-year follow-up period, no clinical and radiological problem was detected in the case. It can be cured by complete resection of the cystic structure without leaving any residue of the cyst wall epithelium.
