Herniation of the Caudate Lobe of the Liver- Acuity is the Key
Abstract

Herniation of the caudate lobe of the liver presenting as posterior mediastinal mass is a rare occurrence. It is vital to determine the acuity of the lesion promptly as acute herniation is a surgical emergency. Chronic and stable liver herniation into the thoracic cavity can be managed conservatively if uncomplicated. Surgery may be warranted if it causes persistent troubling symptoms.
