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.
