Abstract:

Thymoma is the most common tumor of the anterior mediastinum originating from epithelial thymic cells. The tumors are often asymptomatic or with non specific symptoms. We present herein three cases admitted in our surgical for mediastinal tumor. The imagery exams revealed thymomas with lateral and paracardiac evolvement. Intraoperatively, we found tumors in closed contact with the pericardium, developed posterior to the phrenic nerve. In all cases, we performed complete excision of the tumors using a posterolateral thoracotomy. Frozen section was inconclusive in all cases; the final pathological exam diagnosed stage I thymoma. The postoperative course was uneventful for all three patients. The long term follow-up (14 years) revealed no recurrence.
