Abstract

Patients with thymoma present rarely even on active thoracic surgery services. These patients may suffer from many associated conditions but the most common is myasthenia gravis. Aggressive surgical resection is the mainstay of initial therapy. Radiation therapy has a role in patients who are left with retained neoplasm after surgical resection. Recurrence may occur at prolonged intervals but should be treated aggressively.
