Preoperative ultrasonograms of 11 surgically proved thymomas and ex vivo ultrasonograms of 3 resected specimens were compared with pathologic findings of resected specimens. Among 11 thymomas 7 appeared solid, 3 were solid with several cystic regions, and the remaining one was unilocular cystic in appearance. Cystic regions on ultrasonograms corresponded to cystic changes on pathologic specimens. Six malignant thymomas showed a typical lacy appearance on ultrasonograms, which corresponded to the lobulated configuration separated by fibrous septa shown on the pathologic specimens.
