Abstract

A 70-year-old woman underwent coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) due to coronary
heart disease in our center. Intraoperatively, the thymic gland seemed bulky and
appeared to contain blood clots, giving the impression of a hemorrhagic cyst of the
gland.
The lesion consisted of variously-sized blood-filled channels with flat lining and extensive
fresh and old hemorrhage as well as organized thrombus formations. The remnants
of the thymus gland in the periphery could also be seen.
There being no evidence of malignancy in this vascular tumor, a diagnosis of thymic
cavernous hemangioma was made. The operation was uneventful, and the patient was
soon discharged from the hospital in good clinical condition.
