Thymolipoma is a rare tumor of the thymus. Classic radiologic findings of thymolipoma include fatty masses of the anterior mediastinum in conjunction with the thymus. Differential diagnosis with other more aggressive entities like liposarcoma and teratoma can be challenging. We report a case where chemical shift magnetic resonance imaging helped in the differential diagnosis.
