Thymoma is a rare malignancy of unknown etiology. Thymoma is exceedingly uncommon in children and young adults. A cytologic diagnosis of thymoma is extremely challenging as the tumor is uncommon and aspirates are infrequently encountered. With this case report, we want to emphasize the importance of the fine needle aspiration cytology in the diagnosis of this rare neoplasm.
