PMID:  6227587     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of thrombosis of superior vena cava in a child with thymoma is reported and the necessity of an exact definition of vascular lesions in thymopathies underlined. The innominate veins and the superior vena cava should be visualized preoperatively to program an appropriate radical surgical treatment particularly when these vessels are affected by the tumor.
