We reported two cases of the giant mediastinal neurogenic tumors. Patients were women in middle age. In both cases the chest X-ray and CT (computed tomography) demonstrated the huge mass in a pleural cavity without intraspinal invasion. Radical procedures with removal of the giant tumors were performed. The postoperative treatment course was uneventful. The pathology showed schwannoma and neurofibroma. The follow up examination (6-24 months) showed no recurrence of the disease.
