A case of intramediastinal goiter with unilocular cyst formation

A case of intramediastinal goiter with unilocular cyst formation

Japanese Journal of Chest Diseases 48(8): 685-688

A 53 year-old male with complaint of cough was admitted to our hospital on September 24, 1987 because of an abnormal shadow on chest X-ray films. There was a well-defined round shadow in the right apical lung field. The thoracic CT demonstrated a well circumscribed mass, and the slightly displaced trachea in the right upper mediastinal compartments. The mass was identified as cystic mass on echogram. Surgical removal of the tumor was done by the midsternotomy approach. No connection between the tumor and normally situated cervical thyroid was confirmed. The tumor was 4 cm in size and formed a large unilocular cyst. Histological examination showed an adenomatous goiter and no malignancy. This case indicates that mediastinal goiter should be taken into account when a cystic mass in the thorax is encountered.
