Mediastinal haemangioma is a rare benign vascular tumour. A young male presented with complaints of cough and dyspnoea. Serial chest radiographs were suggestive of progressive mediastinal widening and cardiomegaly. Pericardiocentesis revealed haemorrhagic fluid which was negative for microbiology and malignant cells. Patient was unresponsive to antituberculosis treatment and steroids. Computed tomography (CT) of thorax revealed an anterior mediastinal mass lesion with pericardial effusion which on biopsy was found to be a mediastinal haemangioma.
