A 2 year 7 month-old male child presented with recurrent wheezing which did not respond to standard inhalational bronchodilator therapy. Chest X-ray postero-anterior view revealed an opacity in right lung which after doing an MRI chest was provisionally diagnosed to be a multiloculated bronchogenic cyst with intralesional hemorrhage. Surgical excision of the cyst was done and child improved over next 6 month follow up period. Congenital lesions need to be excluded in a child with refractory wheeze.
