Abstract

We report a case of paraesophageal varices presenting as a posterior mediastinal mass in a patient with long-standing portal hypertension. These collaterals were present, despite multiple previous sclerotherapies for submucosal esophageal varices and no endoscopic evidence of their recurrence.
