An active, 55- years-old right-handed lady presented with a lump and prominence of the left scapula for the last two years. She also complained of pain in the left shoulder region on lifting her left arm. Physical examination revealed a mass on the back of the chest wall, deep to the medial border of the scapula, near the inferior angle, which became prominent on abduction of the left arm. The oval-shaped soft tissue mass was soft to firm in consistency and was adherent to the chest wall. There were no other masses present anywhere else on her body. All routine hematological parameters and the frontal chest radiograph were normal. The lady then underwent a contrast enhanced CT scan of the thorax [Figure - 1],[Figure - 2],[Figure - 3].
