Thymomas are rare tumors characterized by their slow growth and their ability to directly invade by contiguity. Although distant dissemination is unusual, all thymoma subtypes have the ability to metastasize to extra thoracic organs. We report the case of a patient with a huge thymic B2 cervico-mediastinal tumor associated with a concomitant liver metastasis.Despite the size and the significant extension of the tumor; the clinical symptoms are severe and medical treatment combining radiochemotherapy has been able to stabilize the lesions.
