A 77-year-old female with aggravating dyspnea was referred to us for the surgical management of a severe calcific aortic valve stenosis. Patient history showed the presence of a mediastinum cystic mass described in 1997 for which clinical surveillance had been proposed. Preoperative computed tomography (Figure 1) and chest X-ray (Figure 2) revealed that the cystic mass had tripled over the last 25 years and currently measured 17x13x3 cm. An aortic valve replacement associated with en bloc removal of the cystic mass was performed.
