Neurenteric cysts are rare congenital abnormalities, commonly occurring in the spinal region, composed of heterotopic endodermal tissue components. We present a case of six months child having cough and intermittent fever. Computed tomography scan showed presence of cystic structure in the mediastinal region. Microscopy showed cyst wall lined by gastric type of mucosa with mucinous secretion lying in the cystic space. Neurenteric cysts are infrequent findings in routine medical practice. There is scanty literature, in relation to its diagnosis, management, and long-term outcome.
