Abstract

The histological and diagnostic features of a thymoma case observed recently have been investigated in the present study. Comparing the case under investigation with the literature, the Authors conclude that the proper surgical approach is that indicated by Jaretsky. By means of a longitudinal sternotomy associated with minimal cervical incision, the whole mediastinal cellular tissue together with that of the thyroid inferior poles is easily removed. Moreover oncological and myastenic recurrences have a very low incidence in cases surgically treated with this procedure.
