Most chondroma often occur within or on the surface of the tubular bone and soft tissue, and are also found in many organs, but it is extremely rare in the mediastinum. Recently, we experienced a case of chondroma of the middle mediastinum, in a 13-years old girl with intermittent chest discomfort and exertional dyspnea for several months. Diagnosis was made by thoracic C-T scan and histopathological findings of the mass, postoperatively. Histopathologic findings showed typically lobulated cartilaginous appearance. A brief review of the literature was made.
Key Words: Chondroma.
