168 mediastinal masses, 4 of which were cystic lymphangiomas, were operated on in the Thoracic Surgery Department of 1st Surgical Special Pathology. After an analysis of the frequency and the pathogenetic theories of this rare disease, the authors illustrate with the aid of clinical cases the clinical procedures and instrumental semeiotics which may sometimes lead to suspicion of this pathology, with particular regard to Computerised Axial Tomography (C.A.T.).
