We wish to emphasize the clinical and pathologic considerations of this heterogenous group of tumors. The fact that 94 of the patients were asymptomatic stresses the importance of routine chest by: Introduction. The most common tumours in the spectrum of neuroendocrine neoplasms of the mediastinum are represented by well- and moderately differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (so-called carcinoid and atypical carcinoid).

Details Tumours of the Mediastinum (Current Histopathology) FB2

The mediastinum (from Medieval Latin mediastinus, "midway") is the central compartment of the thoracic cavity surrounded by loose connective tissue, as an undelineated region that contains a group of structures within the mediastinum contains the heart and its vessels, the esophagus, the trachea, the phrenic and cardiac nerves, the thoracic duct, the thymus and the FMA:.

tant organ in the mediastinum, and many of the masses encountered in the mediastinum are related to this organ. Most neoplasms diagnosed in the mediastinum are epithe-lial tumours (thymomas and thymic carcinomas), lympho-mas or germ cell tumours.

In contrast, soft tissue tumours of the mediastinum are rare. InPachter and Lattes.The mediastinum is the area that separates the lungs. It is surrounded by the breastbone in front and the spine in back, with the lungs on either side.

It encompasses the heart, aorta, esophagus, thymus (a gland in the back of the neck) and trachea (windpipe). When tumors develop in this area, they are called mediastinal tumors.Mediastinal tumors develop in the mediastinum — that area of the chest that separates the lungs and contains the heart, aorta, esophagus, thymus, and trachea.

Depending on the specific type of cells involved, these rare tumors can develop in epithelial, connective, nerve and muscle tissue, and demand careful evaluation and specialized expertise for an accurate diagnosis.
