Abstract

We report a 42-year-old man with a rare thymic clear cell carcinoma. Marked nodal metastases involved right hilar, mediastinal, and left supraclavicular regions. Complete resection including thymothymectomy, cervicomediastinal nodal dissection, and right upper lobectomy with hilar lymphadenectomy was successful. Postoperative chemoradiation therapy was uneventful. The patient had no recurrence or metastasis until brain metastasis occurred 1 year after surgery.
