This thymus was excised from a 5-year-old male and weighed 75 g. "An anterior mediastinal tumor," which proved to be hyperplastic thymus, was detected 2 years 3 months after resection of a testicular germ cell tumor and postoperative chemotherapy. Normal configuration of the thymus is preserved. Note the prominent lobulation on the incisional surface made at the time of sampling.
