Abstract

Information regarding the effectiveness of chemotherapy in cases of invasive thymoma is limited. Two patients in whom the combination of cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, and vincristine produced remission of invasive thymoma are described. The durations of remission were eight and seven months, respectively. In both patients, recurrence was observed at the site of bulky disease, and a secondary complete response continuing for 37 months was achieved in one of them with radiation therapy.
