It is well established that lesions with a greater percentage of ground-glass opacity are less likely to have nodal disease or higher stage and to have a better prognosis than lesions with a greater solid component, in which invasive adenocarcinoma likely predominates [19, 20]. In the absence of definitive guidelines regarding the management of these types of lesions, excellent interim guidelines have been published [21] that advocate more aggressive surgical management when a lesion exceeds 1 cm overall or when there is significant increase in the solid component.

They are generally considered developmental abnormalities caused by persistence of the thymopharyngeal duct. Radiologically, thymic cysts manifest as wellmarginated, rounded masses that are characteristically located in the anterior superior mediastinum. On CT scans, they appear as sharply delineated masses with near-water attenuation. Thymic cysts are usually unilocular but some may be multiloculated, with occasional visualization of linear wall calcification. On MR, thymic cysts have a very high signal attenuation on T2-weighted images but variable signal intensity on T1-weighted images, depending on the degree of proteinaceous material or hemorrhage present [5, 6].

B CT shows the typical appearance of a pericardial cyst. Note the change in shape with the change in the patient’s position developmental cysts (bronchogenic and enteric cyst) [5]. The predominant mass in the middle superior mediastinum is the intrathoracic goiter. Mediastinal Goiter Mediastinal goiter is one of the most common mediastinal abnormalities seen in daily practice [6]. Patients are usually asymptomatic but rarely may present with pain or symptoms related to tracheal compression. Radiographically, mediastinal goiter appears as a sharply defined, smooth or lobulated mass that usually causes displacement and narrowing of the trachea.
