Primary mediastinal dedifferentiated liposarcoma resected by lateral thoracotomy with video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery.

Hamanaka K, Ohashi M, Nakamura T - J Surg Case Rep (2016)

Bottom Line: A 74-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a left intrathoracic tumor ∼10 cm in diameter.The tumor was resected by left lateral thoracotomy with video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery.No evidence of recurrence has been seen as of 8 months postoperatively.

Contrast-enhanced CT of the chest shows an oval, smooth-shaped, heterogeneous tumor displacing the left lower lobe of the lung, measuring 10 × 7.4 × 6 cm on horizontal (A) and coronal (B) sections without pleural effusion or hemothorax.

RJV163F2: Contrast-enhanced CT of the chest shows an oval, smooth-shaped, heterogeneous tumor displacing the left lower lobe of the lung, measuring 10 × 7.4 × 6 cm on horizontal (A) and coronal (B) sections without pleural effusion or hemothorax.

Mentions: A 74-year-old man was referred to our hospital after a left middle and posterior mediastinal tumor was detected on computed tomography (CT) performed as an examination for dry cough in other hospital. CT about 2 years earlier had shown a 3.2 × 2.4-cm lipomatous tumor at the left hilum adjacent to the left lower pulmonary vein (Fig. 1), and that lipomatous tumor was considered the origin of the present mediastinal tumor. Contrast-enhanced CT performed in our hospital showed a heterogeneous tumor, displacing the left lower lobe of the lung, and measuring 10 × 7.4 × 6 cm on horizontal and coronal sections (Fig. 2A and B). Magnetic resonance imaging showed a hyperintense marginal region with central hypointensity on T1-weighted imaging, and heterogeneously high intensity in the whole tumor on T2-weighted imaging. We scheduled surgical resection, and the patient was admitted to our hospital 3 weeks after the first visit. Chest radiography showed rapid growth of the left intrathoracic tumor (Fig. 3A and B), and CT revealed a tumor measuring 11.4 × 8 × 6.2 cm without pleural effusion or hemothorax.Figure 1:
