He had suffered from cough, fever and dyspnea since 4 months of age, and he had been admitted 4 times to other hospitals before he visited severance hospital due to aggravated cough and dyspnea. An esophagogram and computed tomogram of chest were done and a post-tracheal mass was foung. He was successfully treated with open thoracotomy and cystectomy. It is necessary to perform an esophagogram if upper respiratory obstructive disease is continued.
