Giant cell tumor of soft tissue is a rare non-cancerous, however aggressive tumors, first described in 1972. The majority of them have been described to occur mainly in the lower extremity, particularly within the thigh, in both the superficial and the deep soft part. The most frequent clinical presentation is a painless soft tissue mass and both sexes are equally affected, at any age. In this study, we describe a case of 20-year-old lady, with giant cell tumor of soft tissue within the posterior mediastinum, which is an uncommon site of occurrence. At the best of our knowledge this is the sixth case described in the literature with mediastinal involvement from Giant cell tumor.
