Pericardial ­cysts ­are gen­er­al­ly rec­og­nized ­when ­they ­present in a car­di­oph­ren­ic ­angle, ­but ­may ­not be sus­pect­ed ­when ­they ­occur else­where in ­the tho­rax. To high­light ­the unusu­al local­isa­tions of per­i­car­dial ­cysts, we rep­re­sent ­two ­patients ­with ­cysts of ­which ­one ­was adja­cent to ­the ­left pul­mo­nary ­hilum ­and ­the oth­er ­was locat­ed in ­the sub­pul­mo­nary ­region. The cli­ni­cians ­should ­take ­into con­sid­er­a­tion ­this ­entity in ­the dif­fe­ren­tial diag­no­sis of cys­tic ­lesions of ­the med­i­as­ti­num.
