Abstract

There has been no report on the MRI findings of primary thymic MALT lymphoma. We report the correlation between MRI findings and histopathology in four cases of this entity. While primary thymic MALT lymphomas exhibited diverse characteristics, the cystic components inside, which were clearly depicted on T2-weighted images, were considered to be pathognomonic. Primary thymic MALT lymphoma should be considered as one of the differential diagnoses of anterior mediastinal tumors having multilocular cysts that arise in patients with immunological abnormalities.
