Neurogenic tumors are derived from tissue of the neural crest. Most of the mediastinal neurogenic tumors occur in the posterior compartment. Extension to the cervical area and the surrounding major arteries is rare. We report a patient with a ganglioneuroma arising from the brachial plexus, extending into the cervical region, and surrounding the left vertebral and subclavian arteries. The patient underwent successful resection by modified trapdoor thoracotomy.
