Giant ­tumors of the ­chest are ­rare. ­These ­tumors com­prise a spec­trum of dis­ease ­from ­benign ­lesions to ­highly aggres­sive malig­nant ­tumors ­with ­cells of ­origin in the ­pleura, pul­mo­nary paren­chyma, ­blood ves­sels, ­thymus, and con­nec­tive tis­sues. We ­report ­four ­cases of ­giant ­tumors of the ­thorax ­treated ­with pre­op­er­a­tive arte­rial embol­iza­tion fol­lowed by com­plete sur­gical resec­tion. ­Their diag­nostic and treat­ment ­courses, ­imaging, and ­pathology are ­described.
