Thymoma is the most common neoplasm of the anterior mediastinum. Patients may be asymptomatic or present with symptoms of local compression, myasthenia gravis or other paraneoplastic syndrome. We present case of a middle aged woman with a large pleural based mass who was relatively asymptomatic Biopsy of the mass revealed thymoma type AB.Work up showed that she has multiple abdominal masses etiology of which is not known. Whenever feasible, surgery is the treatment of choice for thymoma.Our patient is undergoing chemotherapy with the goal that once the tumor size is reduced she will be able to undergo surgery.
