Abstract

Mediastinal masses are an important feature of mediastinal pathology. This article describes the surgical anatomy of the mediastinum and lists the various masses of the three mediastinal compartments. It also documents the different symptoms caused by the mediastinal masses (seen in the mediastinal syndrome), the diagnostic protocols currently employed in this area of respiratory medicine and oncology and, at last, the principles of therapy of the most important masses.
