Background: Thymoma is a rare tumor in the mediastinum. Due to the fact that a complete study has not been done on Thymoma in Khuzestan region this study was designed as part of a comprehensive study on Thymoma in Ahvaz Golestan Hospital. Methods: This retrospective study was conducted on patients’ medical records with Thymoma attending Department of Radiotherapy and Oncology, Ahvaz Golestan Hospital, in a 10-year period from 2001 to 2011. The study also aimed to investigate the epidemiological data; diagnosis and treatment of patients for the duration of the same time. Results: Among the 26 patients with a mean age of 45.38, ratio of male to female was 5.5 to 1. The majority of the patients were in the range of 30-50 years old which jointly was at 61.8. However, the minimum rate of tumor was seen in decades of 51-60 and 71-80 with 7.7 %. In total, 72.7% patients had invasive thymoma while 27.3% had noninvasive tumor. In addition, there was a significant relationship between invasive thymoma rate and developing myasthenia gravis. The 3-year survival rate for all patients was equivalent to 83.3% however; 5-year survival was equal to 71%. Conclusion: This study was about Thymoma in Khuzestan and in our viewpoint investigating of the disease is very effective from point of epidemiological and treatment matters.
