Thoracoscopic Resection of Intrathoracic Vagus Neurofibroma
19 March 2008 (online)
A thoracoscopic resection of mediastinal neurofibroma originating from the intrathoracic vagus nerve was successfully performed in an 18-year-old female. This report reviews the clinical and morphological features of intrathoracic vagus neurofibroma. Often neurofibroma has multiple lesions and/or multinodular shape. Thoracoscopic resection is a useful treatment for patients with intrathoracic neurofibroma, although careful observation is necessary when performing a radical resection.
