Zusammenfassung

Thymustumoren sind eine inhomogene Gruppe von Neoplasien unterschiedlicher Malignitätsgrade und prognostischer Perspektive. Die Operation ist der Goldstandard der Therapie. Im fortgeschrittenen Stadium ist eine interdisziplinäre Behandlung mit Beteiligung der Bereiche Chirurgie, Strahlentherapie und Onkologie nötig, angesichts der Seltenheit dieser Tumoren in Spezialzentren. Mit Vorsicht kann auch eine Immuntherapie indiziert sein.
