Abstract


Primary neuroendocrine tumors of the thymus are extremely rare. In this report, we describe a case of a 69 year-old man with an intermediate grade thymic neuroendocrine tumor. The radiologic and histopathologic features of thymic neuroendocrine tumors are discussed with reference to relevant literature.
