Abstract

The latest World Health Organization (WHO) histological classification divides thymic epithelial tumours in thymomas and thymic carcinomas (TCs), the latter also including the neuroendocrine thymic tumours (NETTs). NETTs and other TC histotypes have been described to have a significantly lower survival than thymomas, but these two groups of tumours have rarely been compared directly. Using the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons and the International Thymic Malignancy Interest Group datasets, we wanted to study this issue.
