Abstract

The thoracoscopic approach to a mediastinal mass is undoubtedly advantageous, although the dissection of the anatomical structures involved can potentially be challenging. We present a case of a thoracoscopic approach to a complex mediastinal mature teratoma, which was intimately adhered to the aortic arch and also compounded by a spontaneous tumor rupture at that site.
