Author information

We report a case of a thymic neoplasm in an 18-year-old woman who presented with chest discomfort and an anterior mediastinal mass. The surgically resected tumor showed abundant adipose tissue admixed with thymic tissue and numerous medium-caliber blood vessels. We consider this tumor a rare variant of thymolipoma and designate it as thymohemangiolipoma. Because of its benign nature, it should be distinguished from other mediastinal lesions.
