PMID:  11370989     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We describe a 9-year-old boy who presented with dyspnea and with a neck mass which was initially described as a thyroid nodule. At the end of the diagnostic-therapeutic research this mass was finally diagnosed as an adult rhabdomyoma originating from the mediastinum. This is an extremely rare tumor which is usually found in the adult population.
