Mediastinal cysts account for 20% of all mediastinal masses. A 22-year-old pregnant female was admitted for delivery. She developed dyspnea on the 3rd day of delivery. Chest X-ray revealed a large right hydropneumothorax and tube thoracostomy was done. She was referred to us for further management. We decided to operate. At surgery, a ruptured cystic lesion was seen in the posterior mediastinum separate from all three lobes. It was communicating with the bronchus. The cyst was excised completely and bronchial communication was sutured. The lung expanded completely. Post operative period was uneventful. Histopathology revealed it to be a bronchogenic cyst.
