lymphofollikuläre Thymushyperplasie

nicht verwechseln mit: primäres Lymphom des Thymus

Lymphoid thymic hyperplasia, also referred to as lymphoid follicular thymic hyperplasia or autoimmune thymitis, is a form of thymic hyperplasia.



This condition is most commonly associated with conditions, such as:


Unlike in true thymic hyperplasia, there is a presence of an increased number of lymphoid follicles.

Radiographic features


Some publications (with small sample sizes) suggest that CT attenuation of lymphoid hyperplasia can be significantly higher than that of true hyperplasia, with the optimal threshold of around 40 HU useful for differentiating lymphoid hyperplasia from true thymic hyperplasia .
