The differential diagnosis for a mass in the mediastinum is dependent on the mediastinal compartment from which it arises. ––Superior: adenopathy, thyroid, cystic hygroma, aneurysm ––Anterior: thymoma, teratoma/germ cell tumor, thyroid, lymphoma ––Middle: adenopathy, aneurysm, congential anomaly ––Posterior: neurogenic tumors, nerve root tumors, lymphoma Accurate staging of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with enlarged medi• astinal lymph nodes is essential as those staged as IIIA are eligible for surgical resection while those staged as IIIB are offered nonoperative treatment.

5 Transsternal approach for biopsy of aortopulmonary lymph node. CT scan shows biopsy needle advanced through the sternum for biopsy of enlarged lymph node in the aortopulmonary window. The patient has insufficient mediastinal fat to allow for safe access to the lesion via a parasternal approach. −−Needle alignment with the target lesion is particularly important because changes in needle trajectory require total removal of the needle. −−Mediastinal hematomas are occasionally seen following transsternal biopsy, but these tend to be asymptomatic, self-limited, and can be treated conservatively.
