Thymomas are rare anterior mediastinal tumors that originate in the epithelial cells of the thymus and have a rare propensity to metastasize to extrathoracic locations unless it is a histologic high-grade neoplasm (type B and above). We describe a case of 50-year-old woman diagnosed with type AB thymoma and the role of18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography–computed tomography in accurate delineation of extrathoracic metastases during initial staging.
