ABSTRACTMediastinum sarcoma is a rare tumor that represents less than 10% of mediastinal tumors and about 1-2% of all malignancies in general. It should be approached in reference centers with multidisciplinary evaluation and multimodal management options, with an infrastructure that allows surgical resection and reconstruction and strict follow-up, taking into account the high local recurrence that is close to 30%. Therefore, we present a series of cases in 20 years of experience with the participation of several departments and adjusting the definition and management with the current literature.
