Resumen

PAEZ J., Natalia; VALDERRAMA B., Cristian; CHANTA M., Pedro  y  SCHICHT C., Bernardo. Solitary atipic carcinoid tumor of the thymus: An unusual entity that we should not forget. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2020, vol.26, n.3, pp.120-124. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082020000300120.

Primary neuroendocrine tumors (NET) of the mediastinum are very rare. We present the case of a primary atypical carcinoid tumor of the thymus. A 52-year-old man who went to a medical examination because he complained of a non-productive cough without hemoptysis. A chest radiograph was requested where a markedly widened mediastinum was evidenced, with a thoracic tomography showing a tumor mass of 90 x 50 mm in the anterosuperior mediastinum that compresses the aortic arch and pulmonary artery without an adequate cleavage plane. Because the tumor was infiltrative, complete surgical excision, chemotherapy and radiotherapy were provided to the mediastinum. The main objective of our study was to evaluate the findings of CT and MRI in relation to universal literature.
