The mediastinum is the site of infection, benign and malignant, primary and metastatic, many of which present as mediastinal masses and remains an interesting diagnostic challenge. Mediastinal masses affect patients of all ages and can be asymptomatic. Although clinical data, location in the mediastinum and radiological findings all aid in narrowing the differential diagnosis, tissue diagnosis is the gold standard for arriving the final diagnosis. The diagnosis of the mediastinal tumours requires a combination of clinical, radiological and pathological information. The purpose of this review study is to describe demographic, clinical features, radiology and pathological information of mediastinal masses which helps in organised diagnostic approach of mediastinal mass.
