Paraesophageal omental hernia mimics pleural lipomatous tumor

Anderson T. M., Gibbs J. F., Kollmorgen D. R., Urschel J. D.


PDF  


Paraesophageal omental herniation (POH) is uncommon. CT scan and MRI are complementary in diagnosis. We present a posterior mediastinal mass in a 43 year old male with a history of myxoid liposarcoma raising the suspicion of latent secondary tumor. Subsequently, at thoracotomy he was found to have a POH. Differential diagnosis, work-up and surgical approach are discussed.
