Abstract

Sclerosing mediastinitis is an uncommon condition associated with infections, inflammatory diseases, autoimmune disorders, and malignancies. It predominantly affects the trachea, superior vena cava, pulmonary veins, and pulmonary arteries. We herein present the first case of sclerosing mediastinitis involving the ascending aorta as part of a multifocal fibrosclerotic disorder.
