A 20-year-old male patient presented with an intrathoracic mass
A 20-year-old male patient presented with headache and visual loss. Chest radiographies revealed a mediastinal mass with mild compression on the esophagus. Histopathological examination of a CT-guided biopsy showed the characteristics of a neurogenic tumor (schwannoma). A classical posterolateral thoracotomy was performed with total resection of the tumor from the left superoposterior area.
