Alveolar soft part sarcoma: unusual etiology of mediastinal mass in an adolescent
AbstractAlveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS) is a rare malignancy that usually arises in an extremity. Mediastinal involvement is uncommon, with only two reports of primary mediastinal disease and two reports of metastatic mediastinal disease in the literature, all referencing adult patients. To our knowledge, ours is the first report of ASPS presenting with a mediastinal mass in adolescence. Although ASPS is not generally included in the differential for adolescent mediastinal masses, it should be considered when clinical presentation and imaging appearance are characteristic.
