Abstract

ABSTRACT‐ Two cases of simultaneous occurrence of myasthenia gravis (MG) and thymolipoma are described and 4 previously reported cases are reviewed. In all 6 cases, thymectomy was performed. Pre‐ and postoperatively, the clinical status of the patients was similar to that of late‐onset MG without thymolipoma. It is possible that simultaneous occurrence of MG and thymolipoma may be coincidental.
