Localized malignant mesothelioma in the mediastinum is rare and most known cases have been reported as “localized malignant pericardial mesothelioma.” We report a case of a middle mediastinal tumor, which we were able to resect completely. Histopathological examination of the tumor confirmed that it was a malignant epithelial lymphohistiocytoid mesothelioma. We assumed that the tumor was derived from the pericardium. Local recurrence was detected 1 year after resection, and the patient died of the disease about 2 years later.
