Editorial Reviews

Summarizes the protocols developed by the very few specialists on the rare and mostly malignant human neoplasms that display a variety of morphological features and an unrivaled frequency of associated autoimmune diseases. The 50 papers cover histological and immunological characteristics, differential diagnosis, altered T cell functions, para-neoplastic autoimmunity, diagnosis and therapy, and managing thymectomized patients. The individual papers focus on such topics as a clinical pathological study in Singapore, the development of T cells in the human thymus, titin epitope, the core needle biopsy of anterior mediastinum masses, therapeutic options in locally advanced thymoma, and the role of radiotherapy.
