We report the case of a 6-month-old boy known antenatally to have a mediastinal cyst. Postnatal workup showed a noncommunicating compressive cyst bound to the lower third of the native esophagus. He underwent its removal by transhiatal laparoscopy. This appears to be the first case of laparoscopic removal of a thoracic esophageal duplication cyst in a child.
