Abstract

Thymoma is the most frequent epithelial tumor in the anterior mediastinal compartment in adults, with an overall incidence of 0.15 cases per 100,000 (National Cancer Institute Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results program). Because of the indolent course and sporadic occurrence of these lesions, management has largely been based on single-institution retrospective, observational studies. Despite the large body of literature, no uniformly accepted guidelines are available so far. Complete surgical resection, when feasible, is currently considered the gold standard; however, the role of chemo-radiotherapy (RT), histology, and staging is still to be clearly defined. The European Society of Thoracic Surgeons Thymic Working Group (ESTS-TWG) distributed an electronic survey among the members of the Society to collect an overview of current thymoma management.
