A case of bilateral Castleman tumors in the posterior mediastinum is described. Computer tomography proved to be an accurate, noninvasive method of investigation since it identified not only a large mass but also a smaller mass, which was not visible on standard chest X-ray film. Complete surgical excision was possible. The high attenuation values of both masses demonstrated the hypervascularity of the lesion.
