Background: Bronchogenic cysts are congenital malformations derived from anomalous budding of the embryonic foregut. An intradural extramedullary bronchogenic cyst is a congenital malformation and an extremely rare type of endodermal cyst.

Case presentation: We present 2 cases with bronchogenic cyst. A 43 years old female and 52 years old male patients who presented with radicular and myelopathy symptoms in the limbs and their images revealed intra dural cystic lesions in the cervical and thoracic regions respectively. Both patients underwent total surgical excisions and histological examination revealed bronchogenic cysts.

Conclusion: Total excision is the treatment of choice with good prognosis. Incomplete resection has a high risk of recurrence. Radiological follow up is recommended.
