Mediastinal masses of neuronal origin are exceedingly rare. We present the case of a 72-year-old woman, who was seen and evaluated by a pulmonologist, complaining of shortness of breath. The patient was found to have a mass visualized by computed tomography which was biopsied for pathologic identification. Upon microscopic examination of the transbronchial biopsy, neural tissue was observed. It is likely that the source of this ganglioma was of phrenic nerve origin.
