Abstract:

Primary and secondary intrathoracic goiters P-ITGs and S-ITGs, respectively account for up to 5.8 of mediastinal masses. Unlike S-ITGs, P-ITGs are structurally distinct from the cervical thyroid gland and receive their blood supply from mediastinal vessels while only representing 0.2-1.0 of all ITGs.
