COMMENTS

This radiograph represents the pretreatment image of a patient with lymphoma manifest as a huge anterior mediastinal mass. The lung fields otherwise are generally clear. The post-treatment x-ray shows calcified lymph nodes in the right hilum with reduction in the anterior mediastinal mass. The cell-type was Hodgkin's. CT scan better defines the relationship of the mediastinal mass with the cardiac silhouette and great vessels.
