    Abstract

    Mediastinal haemangioma is a rare disease. We report a 23-year-old male patient with a posterior mediastinal cavernous haemangioma. The CXR revealed a progressively enlarging mediastinal mass which on chest CT and angiography appeared to be a well-enhanced hypervascular tumour. Angiographic gel foam embolization of the feeding vessels was undertaken prior to the surgical removal of the mass. The mass lesion following surgical removal was shown to be a cavernous haemangioma on histological examination.
