Intrathoracic meningocele: a report of two cases.


Two cases of intrathoracic meningocele are reported: their association with neurofibromatosis is stressed. The likelihood of a posterior mediastinal mass occurring in a patient with neurofibromatosis being a meningocele is emphasised. A review of the literature is presented. In view of the relatively few cases of intrathoracic meningocele with neurofibromatosis documented since 1933, we feel justified in reporting these 2 cases.
