The article focuses on the case of 16-year-old boy who was admitted to the hospital because of a sternal mass and mediastinal enlargement noted on an x-ray film after thorax trauma. The mass had appeared 11 months earlier after physical exertion and had been interpreted as sternal dislocation. The patient reported no symptoms. Physical examination revealed a painless "sternal hump" without inflammatory signs and bilateral cervical lymphadenopathy. A magnetic resonance image showed an anterior mediastinal mass eroding the sternal manubrium.
