MELO, Iury Andrade et al. Isolated mediastinal cystic lymphangioma. Rev Port Pneumol [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.4, pp.697-703. ISSN 0873-2159.

A 59 years old female patient, asymptomatic, with the incidental finding of an ovarian tumor in her routine gynecological evaluation, and during the preoperative examinations it was incidentally found an isolated mediastinal tumor, and then routed to diagnostic evaluation of the lesion, which later proved to be a cystic lymphangioma. The cystic hygroma of the mediastinum is a benign tumor and very infrequent, representing only 0.7 to 4.5% of all mediastinal tumors, and of these, only 1% is exclusively mediastinal in location. The definitive diagnosis is only possible by pathological examination, and the recommended treatment consists of complete surgical resection. Cases are described in isolated reports or series with few patients, and their readiness or synchronicity with other tumors, unknown, and to the best of out knowledge, not reported yet.
