Esophageal duplication cysts are rare congenital cystic masses that may induce various symptoms. Complete surgical resection is the standard treatment. Although thoracoscopic resection has recently become more popular, cervical esophageal duplication cysts located at the upper third esophagus are difficult to excise via thoracoscopic approach. Here we present a case of a cervical esophageal duplication cyst in an infant, which could be resected via thoracoscopic approach only.
