Abstract

Thymic carcinoma is a rare malignant neoplasm of the thymus arising in the thymic epithelium and has a higher frequency of local invasion and metastasis than other subtypes of thymic epithelial tumors. Thymic carcinoma is usually demonstrated as a large, irregular mass located in the anterior mediastinum and commonly contain a necrotic or cystic component. We report atypical CT findings and multicentricity in a case of thymic carcinoma presenting two small nodules in the anterior mediastinum.
