Abstract

SESSION TITLE: Pleural Cases

SESSION TYPE: Case Reports

PRESENTED ON: Sunday, March 23, 2014 at 09:00 AM - 10:00 AM

PURPOSE: Posterior mediastinal hemangioma is a very rare tumor. We present a 50-years-old woman admitted to our hospital because of dyspnea and chest pain. A chest x-ray showed a shadow in the aortic arch and a unilateral massive pleural effusion. Serous fluid was aspirate via thoracocentesis, but no malignancy was detected on cytological examination. During the diagnosis process she requires several thoracocentesis to relive the symptoms. CTscan revealed a hypodense and hypervascular circular mass approximately 6 cm in diameter with well defined margins in the posterior mediastinum. Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery was performed with a total resection of the lesion. The tumor was diagnosed as mediastinal capillary hemangioma with hyaline regression. The pleural effusion was attributed to the capillary mass and no relapsing was shown in further controls.
