Abstract

We report two cases of aggressive fibromatosis of the mediastinum with esophageal involvement in adults. CT showed the posterior mediastinal mass involving the esophagus. In both cases, surgical resection was not feasible. Histopathologic examination showed a fibrous tissue. The patients died two years later.

Key words: Esophageal stenosis—Mediastinal fibromatosis—Fibrous tissue—Mediastinal enlargement—CT of the mediastinum.
