Noninfiltrating angiolipoma of the mediastinum.

Author information

Department of Radiology, Veterans Administration Hospital, Tampa, FL 22612.


A case of mediastinal angiolipoma in a 63-year-old man is described. A computed tomographic scan of the thorax demonstrated a large encapsulated mass with fatty and soft-tissue components near the esophagus. This appearance was considered suggestive of a liposarcoma. However, at surgery a benign noninfiltrating angiolipoma was found and removed. To the authors' knowledge, angiolipomas have not previously been reported to occur within the mediastinum.
