Abstract

A nine year-old boy presented with symptoms of dyspnoea. The chest radiograph and computed tomography scan revealed a large mediastinal tumour. A decision to operate on the patient was made. A huge 2.45. kg mediastinal lipoblastoma was successfully removed from the boy's chest. At three years no evidence of recurrence was found.
