Rare Presentation of Giant Isolated Enteric Cyst in Anterior Mediastinum

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Mediastinal enteric cysts are extremely rare. In the published English literature, most such cysts are reported in the right posterior mediastinal position, often with vertebral anomalies. Just four cases have been reported for enteric cysts in atypical mediastinal locations since 1997. This report describes an additional case of an atypically located giant isolated enteric cyst in the anterior mediastinum.
