Abstract

We report a case of simultaneous occurrence of thymic epithelial hyperplasia and Hodgkin's disease. A computed tomographic scan of the chest revealed a tumor in the anterior mediastinum and conspicuous swelling of lymph nodes in the upper and lower mediastinum. The anterior mediastinal tumor was histologically diagnosed as thymic epithelial hyperplasia, while the lymph nodes were nodular sclerosis Hodgkin's disease. Our findings suggest that thymic hyperplasia might be directly involved in the pathology of at least some cases of Hodgkin's disease.
