Abstract

Although new growths of the mediastinum are very rare in childhood, the possibility of their occurrence should be bone in mind in the differential diagnosis of obscure intrathoracic conditions.

There have been, however, only a few studies of this condition in childhood by foreign writers, notably Schubert,2 Rosenberg,3 Bollog,4 and Keating.5 Up to the present time, as far as can be ascertained from a search of the
