Thymomas may occur in association with a variety of autoimmune and haematologic phenomena including:
- myasthenia gravis - the most common association but less often associated
with more aggressive thymomas (1)
- haematologic cytopenias e.g. aplastic anaemia
- collagen vascular diseases e.g. systemic lupus erythematous
- non-thymic malignancies
