Abstract

Intrathoracic neurogenic tumors are relatively uncommon, and there have been few reports regarding their entire clinical characteristics in the Asian population. Objectives: We retrospectively reviewed our Japanese institutional experience of intrathoracic neurogenic tumors, with emphasis on the clinical spectrum. Methods: We analyzed the records of 146 patients with intrathoracic neurogenic tumors who were treated over the past 50 years. There were 60 pediatric and 86 adult patients (74 males and 72 females). Results: There were 51 ganglioneuromas, 37 schwannomas, 30 neurofibromas, 18 neuroblstomas, 5 gangliobastomas, and 5 others, of which 136 cases were located in the posterior mediastinum, 9 in the chest wall, and 1 in the lung parenchyma. Neurogenic tumors were most commonly seen as a pediatric mediastinal tumor (46.2%), as compared to 11.2% in the adult population (P
