A congenital malformation of the bronchial tree, known as bronchial cyst, is mostly found in the mediastinum or lung. Intracardiac bronchogenic cysts are quite rare and only two cases of right ventricular bronchogenic cyst have so far been reported. We herein report a case in which a cyst developed in the right ventricle of a 65-year-old Japanese male who presented with aphasia due to cerebral infarction and pulmonary embolism. The cyst was successfully removed and the patient successfully recovered following surgery.
