Abstract:   (6743 Views)
Thymoma is the most common neoplasm of anterior mediastinum with incidence peaks during the fourth, fifth and sixth decades of life. Two-thirds of patients are asymptomatic and identified accidentally by chest x-rays . Of the total, 40-70 % of patients have one or more parathymic syndromes of which Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is the most common and reported in 10-50% . Gullain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) has not been reporterd as a parathymic presentation in present literature. We report a 37 years old woman who presented with GBS after thymoma resection. There is one question: Is there any association between thymoma and GBS or is it a complication of surgery (thymectomy)?
