Abstract

Mediastinal masses are benign or malignant tumours that originate from the thymus, thyroid, lung, lymphoid system, pleura, or pericardium. Cardiovascular and respiratory symptoms may occur because of the compression of surrounding tissues along with growing mass. In this study, we present the anaesthetic management of a 6-month-old child having a massive anterior mediastinal mass that had a compressing effect.
