ABSTRACT
Introduction: The thymuses are quite rare neoplastic lesions arising in anterior mediastinum seen in the adults. The histological spectrum varied from the encapsulated thymoma to the thymic carcinomas. Further subtyping into various groups on the basis of morphology with immunohistological findings have gained the popularity as depicted by the latest WHO classification of thymomas. A few studies have been done to ascertain the characteristics of thymic neoplasms in Indian population.
Methodology: 09 years retrospective analysis of the total 17 thymoma cases reported from year 2011 to 2019 were assessed for histomorphological features with clinical findings, age, sex and staging.
Methodology: 09 years retrospective analysis of the total 17 thymoma cases reported from year 2011 to 2019 were assessed for histomorphological features with clinical findings, age, sex and staging.
Conclusion: The morphological classification and staging of thymomas should be used in surgical pathology reporting.
