Abstract

Malignant transformation of a mediastinal neurofibroma, presenting for many years as a mass in the superior mediastinum and arising from the right vagus nerve, was found in a patient with long-standing von Recklinghausen's disease. Surgical management of intrathoracic neurogenic tumours, even if clinically benign, is advocated.
