A 50-year-old man presented with a middle and posterior mediastinal mass on chest radiograph and computed tomography. Surgical exploration revealed a large dumbbell-shaped lipomatous lesion. Histologic examination confirmed this to be a fibrolipoma. This is the first reported case of fibrolipoma in the mediastinum but outside of the esophagus.
