Resumo

O linfangioma mediastínico é uma neoplasia vascular rara, correspondendo a 0,7 a 4,5% de todos os tumores do mediastino. É um tumor benigno, que ocorre geralmente como uma massa mediastínica de crescimento lento. A maioria dos doentes está assintomática, sendo diagnosticado incidentalmente, após a realização de uma radiografia torácica de rotina. O tratamento de eleição consiste na ressecção cirúrgica completa. O prognóstico depende do grau de ressecabilidade e, se a lesão for totalmente removida, não se esperam recidivas.

Abstract

Mediastinal lymphangioma is a rare vascular neoplasm, accounting for 0.7 to 4.5% of all the mediastinum tumors. It is a benign tumor, generally occurring as a mediastinal mass of slow growth. Most patients are asymptomatic, being incidentally diagnosed after a routine chest radiograph. The best treatment consists of complete surgical resection. Prognosis depends on the degree of resecability degree, and recurrence is not expected if the lesion is totally removed.
