Although thymoma is a rare tumor, it is the most common anterior mediastinal tumor, usually affecting the adults in their fifth and sixth decade. We present a case of 68-year-old man with history of myocardial infarction, who presented to the cardiology OPD with recent onset of exertional dyspnea. On 99mTc MIBI myocardial perfusion SPECT, there was an extra cardiac accumulation of radiotracer in the anterior mediastinum just above the heart, which later was diagnosed as thymoma on histopathology.
