Abstract

A 51-year-old female underwent resection of a solid lesion in the posterior mediastinum, preoperatively interpreted at imaging as thoracic schwannoma, requiring double sequential surgical procedure to be resected. The histologic examination of the resected mass diagnosed a hyaline-vascular Castleman's disease.
