Abstract

Tracheal diverticulum (DV) is a type of paratracheal air cyst (PTAC)
  Tracheal DV can be congenital and acquired [1]. Patients can be asymptomatic or present with Dysphagia, odynophagia, neck pain, hoarseness, hemoptysis, choking, and recurrent episodes of hiccups and burping. Tracheal diverticulum can be diagnosed on CT Scan and bronchoscopy and the connection with tracheal lumen can be established. Conservative treatment is the preferred treatment in asymptomatic patients. Surgical or conservative treatment can be performed for symptomatic patients, depending on patient age and physical condition.

Keywords: Tracheal Diverticulum (DV); Bronchoscopy
