128 Possible Causes for Mediastinal Mass, Thoracic Aortic Dissection

  • Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm

    His chest X-ray showed a left-sided mediastinal mass with mild to moderate pleural effusion. An ultrasound appeared to show an encysted pleural fluid collection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Immunofluorescence also showed that BRM and MMP2 were expressed in the thoracic aortic aneurysm and aortic dissection tissue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Additionally, mediastinal masses may mimic aortic aneurysms.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Dissecting Aortic Aneurysm

    aortic dissecting aneurysm with intramural hematoma, jeopardising renal and splanchnic circulation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A portable chest x-ray and selected early and late phase images from a gadolinium enhanced MR angiogram shown above demonstrate findings of a Type B dissecting thoracic aortic[home.earthlink.net] aortic dissection (TAD), non-dissecting thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA), and thoracic aortic aneurysm or dissection (TAAD); the largest effect was observed for the association[journals.plos.org]

  • Rare Disease with Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm and Aortic Dissection

    Although aneurysms of the thoracic aorta are the most common vascular cause of mediastinal masses, accounting for 10% of all mediastinal masses.[file.scirp.org] […] complaints (myocardial infarction/ischemia, thoracic aortic dissection, and pulmonary embolism) [ 1 ] differentiating between thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA)/thoracic aortic[wjes.biomedcentral.com] mass during routine noninvasive exploration. [1], [2] An aortic aneurysm is a permanent localized dilatation having diameter at least 1.5 times greater than the normal diameter[lungindia.com]

  • Superior Vena Cava Syndrome

Aortic dissection presenting as superior vena cava syndrome.[emedicine.com] Here, we report a fascinating case of a young, otherwise healthy, immunocompetent patient that presented to us with superior vena cava syndrome and a mediastinal mass.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mediastinal Mass

    However, the radiographic appearance of mediastinal edema can mimic a mediastinal mass in the context of acute fluid overload.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] What is the location of an aortic aneurysm, dissection? middle and posterior mediastinum What is the location of a thymoma, thymic cyst?[quizlet.com] We report a case of a mediastinal mass indenting the left lateral tracheal wall of a 35-year-old male who presented with weight loss, cough and breathlessness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mediastinopericarditis

  • Aortic Aneurysm

    Additionally, mediastinal masses may mimic aortic aneurysms.[radiopaedia.org] What is thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection?[marfan.org] The first was an abdominal aortic aneurysm with a complex neck, and the second was a thoracic aortic dissection aneurysm (TADA) with an angled arch.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ductus Arteriosus Aneurysm

    The differential diagnosis of this mediastinal mass, complications related to ductus aneurysms and the appropriate radiographic workup are discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pitfalls in the diagnosis of thoracic aortic dissection at CT angiography. Radiographics. 2000;20 (2): 309-20. 10.[scmr.org] A left-sided mediastinal mass is always present, obscured only if the aneurysm has already ruptured.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hemothorax

    A CT scan showed posterior mediastinal masses over the lower thoracic spine with right-sided pleural effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hemothorax is an unusual but well-described complication of ruptured thoracic aortic dissection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Computed tomography (CT) angiography showed lung, pleural, and mediastinal metastases and contrast extravasation from the right lower mediastinal mass.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • IgG4-Related Mediastinitis

    The mediastinal mass decreased in size 2 weeks after the initiation of octreotide treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] IgG4-releated aortitis can cause aneurysms or dissections of the thoracic aorta.[rarediseasesjournal.com] Sclerosing mediastinitis consists of a fibroinflammatory mass within the mediastinum that often secondarily obstructs the trachea and bronchi, esophagus, and veins.[humpath.com]
