Cutaneous bronchogenic anomalies are rare. We report a 4-year-old boy who presented with a tumour and relapsing infection in the right scapular region. Histopathological examination of this tumour revealed a subcutaneous cystic legion formed by ciliated columnar epithelium with smooth muscle bundles and squamous epithelium with sebaceous glands.
