Calcifying fibrous pseudotumour is a rare benign tumour of soft tissue origin, occasionally encountered in the thoracic cavity; surgical resection is considered the treatment of choice. Herein we present the case of a young woman who presented with a calcifying fibrous pseudotumour located in the left cervicothoracic junction. At surgery the tumour was found to circumferentially entrap the left subclavian artery and its removal involved segmental artery resection and reconstruction by autologous saphenous vein graft.
