Abstract Share this page

Neurogenic tumors are one of the major causes of mediastinal masses. Most of those detected in adulthood are benign and diagnosed incidentally. Schwannomas may arise from various neural structures such as sympathetic or parasympathetic chain, intercostal nerves or spinal ganglia. Schwannomas are usually located in the posterior mediastinum. It is very rare for them to be localized in middle mediastinum or arise from the phrenic nerve
