Author information

Abstract

A case of invasive thymoma with intracaval and intracardiac extension is reported. The use of cardiopulmonary bypass was necessary to achieve a radical excision of the tumor thus avoiding early death due to cardiovascular complications. This highly unusual mode of tumor presentation makes this particular case worth reporting.
