Computed tomography of invasive thymoma

Academic Article


  • We report a case of invasive thymoma invading and occluding the superior vena cava in which the diagnosis was only made by the computed tomography (CT) study. Correlation of CT and autopsy findings of invasive thymoma were made in order to emphasize the usefulness of CT study in the evaluation of thymoma and its relationship with vascular structures. © 1983.
