Primary anterior mediastinal tumors in children and adults.


This review details pertinent anatomical, radiological, pathological, and clinical information regarding primary anterior mediastinal tumors. Although the majority of these lesions are included in one of several subgroups, for example, thymic tumors, teratomas, or thyroid abnormalities, other less common entities will occasionally be encountered by the practicing surgeon. Likewise, there are variations in the frequency distribution of anterior mediastinal lesions in children as opposed to adults. Management of these individual lesions is outlined.
