iThe article presents an image based overview of lymphangioma, which is a rare case of mediastinal mass. It highlights the examination of an asymptomatic patient being investigated for hypertension, whose computed tomographic (CT) scanning revealed a large low attenuation mass encasing the oesophagus extending from the carina to the diaphragm. The thoracoscopic biopsy specimen revealed ectatic vascular spaces, some of which contained lymph and others blood.
