Özet

Thymomas are mysterious tumors commonly have unpredictable behaviors and may be associated with several paraneoplastic conditions including Good's syndrome. We reported a patient with a history of thymoma who presented with centrilobuler parenchymal lung nodules and recurrent sinopulmonary infections. The nodules were found to be thymoma metastasis which persisted in the lungs for 3 years. The diagnosis of Good's syndrome was established in consistence with recurrent infections and progressive hypogammaglobulinemia.
