Makobore, P.; Omagino, O.; Mwambu, T.; Apio, S. & Ibilata, G.


A 20 year old man was referred to Mulago hospital with a diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis (MG) which was suspected to be due to a thymoma. The patient came with complaints of blurring of vision for one year and body weakness for six months. He was investigated using conventional X-rays and C.T. The chest CT scan showed an anterior mediastinal mass. The diagnosis was confirmed on histology report which was consistent with thymoma. The patient was managed surgically, did well post operatively, and was discharged when his vision and muscle power had dramatically improved. On follow up for two years, patient was symptom free.
