Abstract
We present a rare case of cavernous hemangioma located in the anterior mediastinum. A 26-year-old man presented with chest pain and mild dyspnea. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography of the chest showed a heterogeneous, central enhanced mass in the left side of the anterior mediastinum. A median sternotomy was performed, which revealed an elastic, firm mass in the anterior mediastinum adhering to the upper lobe of the left lung. Histopathological examination revealed cavernous hemangioma. The patient made an uneventful recovery.
