There is a large lobulated soft tissue mass present within the cranial mediastinum. The mass is causing caudal displacement of the left cranial lung lobe. The pulmonary parenchyma and the cardiovascular structures appear to be within normal limits. No abnormalities are noted within the viewable abdomen. On the left lateral projection, there is mild irregularity of the cutaneous tissues dorsal to the thoracic vertebra.



There were also masses present in the left kidney and adrenal gland on abdominal ultrasound. Fine needle aspirates of the cranial mediastinal mass were obtained.
