A rare case of a giant thymoma in a patient witness of Jehova treated by single port thoracoscopic resection is reported. A 78-year-old man with chest pain and mild dyspnea had been previously diagnosed with giant thymoma went to our hospital and asked for second opinion of operation. Computed tomography showed a 12.5 cm × 9.5 cm × 10 cm mass in the anterior mediastinum. Under the request of this patient, he is only willing to receive minimal invasive surgery without blood transfusion. Thirty-six hours after surgical resection, the patient safely discharged from our hospital without complication...

We present a case of a large thymoma with invasion to the hilum of the lung and pleural dissemination. A 58-year-old woman was diagnosed with a type B2 thymoma, with suspected pericardium, pulmonary artery and left lung invasion and pleural metastasis (Masaoka-Koga stage IVb). A radical resection was planned after systemic chemotherapy. Through a median sternotomy, we resected the tumour, and after confirmation of pericardium and left lung invasion, we also performed resection of the pericardium, of the lung and of the pleural metastasis...

We describe two cases of myasthenia gravis (MG) with double seropositivity for acetylcholine receptor (AChR) and low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 4 (LRP4) antibodies (AChR/LRP4-MG) with invasive thymoma. Both cases showed myasthenic weakness, which was restricted to the ocular muscles for >5 months from onset, and then unprovoked severe clinical deterioration supervened with predominant bulbar symptoms. The patients responded adequately to therapeutic intervention. Serum AChR antibody levels at post-intervention were markedly decreased, whereas LRP4 antibodies were almost unchanged in case 1 and slightly decreased in case 2...

We present a case of type A thymoma with invasion of the left brachiocephalic vein and lung metastases. An 84-year-old man underwent extended thymectomy combined with left brachiocephalic vein reconstruction and resection of a lung metastasis. Histological examination showed vascular invasion by the tumor. The lung metastasis had high mitotic activity and slight nuclear enlargement, the so-called "atypical" features, but the main part of the primary tumor did not. However, the intravascular portion of the tumor had "atypical" histological features like the lung metastasis...

Colorectal cancer is one of the major health problems, with invade surrounding tissues, and migrate to distant organs being the most critical concern, thus identified metastasis associated hallmarks and more efficacious treatment are urgently needed. It found that forkhead box q1 (FOXQ1) is aberrant expression in variety of human cancers and FOXQ1 is involved in oncogenic pathways. However, the role of FOXQ1 has been unexplored in colorectal cancer metastasis to date. Here, expression of FOXQ1 was higher in colorectal cancer tissue samples and cancer cell lines than in normal colorectal tissue and cell lines...

Thymomas with ring calcifications are very rare and quaint style. Herein, we presented our three cases of thymomas with ring calcifications and reviewed totally 10 cases including 7 cases of previous English literatures. The median age was 53 years. Myasthenia gravis was a complication in 40%. The median maximal diameter was 50 mm. They were diagnosed as pathological type B or had type B component. Based on World Health Organization (WHO) classification, 20%, 60%, and 20% cases were stage I, stage II, and stage III, respectively...

Multiple myeloma (MM) is a clonal proliferation of malignant plasma cells in the bone marrow (BM) that secretes monoclonal paraproteins in the blood serum and urine. Bone marrow MM cells can invade and damage the functions of other tissues and organs, such as the lungs, spleen, liver, pancreas, kidneys and lymph nodes. However, the invasion of MM cells primarily located in the BM to the anterior mediastinum at the site of the thymus is an extremely rare event. The current study reports the case of a 53-year-old female who presented with MM with involvement of the anterior mediastinum...

Good syndrome is a rare condition in which thymoma is associated with hypogammaglobulinemia; it is characterized by repeated respiratory or systemic infections caused by bacteria, viruses, and fungi, as well as with various autoimmune disorders such as pure red cell aplasia. A 65-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with ptosis and abdominal muscle weakness. Based on the presence of anti-acetylcholine receptor (Ach-R) antibodies, she was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis (MG). At that time, invasive thymoma of Masaoka stage IVa was also detected...

Isaacs syndrome is a form of peripheral nerve hyperexcitability, characterized by spontaneous muscle twitching and stiffness. Some patients are reported to be positive for CASPR2 antibody that may be one of the pathogenic autoantibodies in Isaacs syndrome. We reported a series of three patients with Isaacs syndrome, including their clinical features, electrophysiologic findings, laboratory parameters and therapeutic responses. All the three patients were positive for CASPR2 antibodies examined on transfected human embryonic kidney 293 cells by indirect immunofluorescence method...

Thymomas are rare epithelial mediastinal tumors showing a certain propensity for local and intrathoracic recurrences. Otherwise, extrathoracic metastases are very rarely reported and are usually associated with type B thymomas or thymic carcinomas. We present a challenging patient with an invasive (Masaoka-Koga stage IIb) medullary type A thymoma with recurrent extrathoracic metastases (pulmonary and vertebral localizations occurring 2 and 7 years after the initial radical thymectomy, respectively). Despite type A thymoma being considered a low-grade malignancy with a scarce propensity to recurrence, the present case should alert clinicians to the possibility of bone metastasis...

In recent years, thymectomy has become a widespread procedure in the treatment of myasthenia gravis (MG). Likelihood of remission was highest in preoperative mild disease classification (Osserman classification 1, 2A). In absence of thymoma or hyperplasia, there was no relationship between age and gender in remission with thymectomy. In MG treatment, randomized trials that compare conservative treatment with thymectomy have started, recently. As with non-randomized trials, remission with thymectomy in MG treatment was better than conservative treatment with only medication...

The prognosis of myasthenia gravis (MG) in association with invasive or metastatic thymoma is usually worse, and therapeutic options are quite limited. Here, we retrospectively reported the therapeutic effect of docetaxel plus cisplatin (docetaxel/cisplatin) chemotherapy in 7 MG patients with metastatic thymoma. Previously, all patients underwent thymectomy at the first onset of thymoma. After the metastasis of thymoma, none of the patients received thymectomy due to unresectable conditions after surgeon's evaluation for great risk of myasthenic crisis (n = 5) or patients' refusal (n = 2)...

OBJECTIVES: Thoracoscopic surgery is widely used for the surgical treatment of thymoma. However, large-sized thymomas are typically treated using open surgery. This study evaluated the feasibility of performing thoracoscopic thymectomy (TT) for thymoma ≥50 mm. METHODS: A retrospective review was conducted on 135 patients who underwent TT or open thymectomy (OT) for Masaoka stage I-IVa thymoma between 1996 and 2014. RESULTS: Patients were first divided into two groups based on thymoma size: thymoma ≥50 mm and thymoma <50 mm groups...

A 53-year-old male with an invasive thymoma extending to the superior vena and right atrium, presenting as superior vena cava syndrome is herein reported. However invasive thymoma with this growth pattern is extremely rare. In this case, the tumor was successfully resected via median sternotomy with cardiopulmonary bypass. After 17 months of follow-up, the patient was still free from any signs and symptoms indicative of superior vena cava syndrome, but recurrent tumor in the right pleura was observed on the follow-up chest computed tomography...

In spite of difficult anatomic access for tumors of mediastinum, surgical resection remains the best diagnostic and therapeutic approach. Widespread acceptance of video-assisted thoracoscopy (VATS) is restricted by the limiting nature of instruments and suboptimal visualization. Robotic assisted minimally invasive surgery seems to hold most promise in remote, narrow anatomical regions. After obtaining approval from Institutional Review Board (IRB), a retrospective review of prospectively collected database on patients that underwent Robotic VATS between 2009 and 2013 was conducted...

BACKGROUND: We believe the merit of preservation of a part of the thymus following surgery for thymoma. We evaluated the efficacy of partial or subtotal thymectomy for early-stage thymoma in the prospective study. METHODS: The Japanese Association for Research on the Thymus conducted a multiple institutional study of thymectomy for thymoma localized in the thymus without total thymectomy. Patients without autoimmune disease who had an anterior mediastinal tumor that had been clinically diagnosed as an early-stage thymoma were enrolled in the study...
