In total, 80%-90% of neurogenic tumors, paraesophageal
cysts, mesenchymal tumors, and liposarcomas generally develop in the posterior mediastinum.
Mediastinal and paraesophageal
abscess is observed frequently, and brain abscess and epidural abscess have been reported rarely in both children and adults (1).

HH is classified into two types depending on the position of the gastroesophageal (GE) junction and the extent of herniated stomach: sliding hernias and paraesophageal
hernias [6, 7].
Esophageal perforations due to ingestion of a foreign body can cause complications like mediastinal infection, vascular trauma (aortoesophageal fistula, pseudoaneurysm), paraesophageal
abscess, tracheoesophageal fistula, pneumomediastinum, pneumothorax, pericarditis, and some others [10, 11, 14-17].
30) Labeling the lymph nodes according to the region where they were obtained in the proximal paraesophageal
, distal paraesophageal
, perigastric lesser curvature, or perigastric greater curvature can be done; however, there is no evidence that this practice influences the prognosis in the case of positive nodes.
The CT scan revealed a posterior mediastinal mass in the right lower one-third of the paraesophageal
Air densities, compatible with the pneumomediastinum seen in the paraesophageal
region, with prominence in the paraaortic area were detected in tomography (Figure 2).
CECT thorax and abdomen was done which revealed irregular mid and lower thoracic esophageal thickening with paraesophageal
Drawing on content from the two-volume Operative Techniques in Surgery, this volume describes surgical techniques in thoracic and esophageal surgery, covering the trachea, lung, mediastinum, esophagus, diaphragm, paraesophageal
hernias, gastroesophageal reflux, Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer, and esophageal perforation.
6) Initial positron emission tomography (PET) imaging revealed a mildly hypermetabolic paraesophageal
lymph node, but no other findings consistent with advanced disease.
