Abstract

Thymomas and thymic carcinomas are unique tumors of the anterior mediastinum. The association of a variety of different paraneoplastic syndromes with such lesions has fascinated physicians and researchers for years. Most recently, it has been demonstrated by numerous authors that thymomas are chemosensitive tumors. Their indolent nature and relative rarity have made evaluation through prospective randomized clinical trials extremely difficult. Further information regarding the molecular nature of these neoplasms and immunologic aspects is needed in future investigation.
