Jang SH, Cho HD, Lee JH, Lee HJ, Jung HY, Kim KJ, Cho SS, Oh MH - J Pathol Transl Med (2015)

Bottom Line: A glomus tumor in the mediastinum is very uncommon, and only five cases have been reported in the English literature.We recently encountered a 21-year-old woman with an asymptomatic mediastinal mass that measured 5.3 × 4.0 cm.After reviewing this case and previous reports, we analyzed the clinicopathologic features associated with progression of such a tumor.

ABSTRACT
A glomus tumor in the mediastinum is very uncommon, and only five cases have been reported in the English literature. We recently encountered a 21-year-old woman with an asymptomatic mediastinal mass that measured 5.3 × 4.0 cm. Surgical excision was performed, and the tumor was finally diagnosed as mediastinal glomus tumor with an uncertain malignant potential. After reviewing this case and previous reports, we analyzed the clinicopathologic features associated with progression of such a tumor.

Radiologic and macroscopic findings. (A) Chest computed tomography reveals a well-demarcated enhanced mass in the anterior inferior mediastinum. (B) Mediastinal mass shows a gray-white homogeneous cut surface with no necrotic or hemorrhagic focus.

Mentions: A 21-year-old woman was referred to our hospital due to a mediastinal mass that was incidentally detected on a chest X-ray performed during health screening. The patient did not complain of any notable symptoms. Chest computed tomography scan revealed a densely-enhanced, round to oval-shaped mass in the right cardiophrenic angle of the anterior inferior mediastinum. Small tortuous vascular structures were noted near the tumor (Fig. 1A). The patient underwent thoracoscopic mediastinal mass excision.
