Abstract

The normal thymus in children is highly variable in size and shape. In some cases this has led to the misdiagnosis of mediastinal pathology and an unnecessary thoracotomy. Twenty-five children without suspicion of mediastinal pathology and five children with suspected mediastinal pathology were imaged using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MRI is recommended to distinguish between the normal and abnormal thymus in difficult cases where other imaging techniques are inconclusive.
