      • Slides


      Extranodal marginal zone lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) is a rare thymic tumor with a few cases described to date. Amyloid deposition can be unusually associated with MALT lymphoma, and those cases have been reported arising from the lung, soft tissue, ocular adnexa, skin, and aerodigestive tract. To our knowledge, our case is the first report of thymic MALT lymphoma with amyloid deposition.

      A 35-year-old East Asian male presented with dyspnea on exertion. He did not have any history of autoimmune disease. His CT scan showed a 7.5-cm mass in the anterior mediastinum with extensive conglomerated calcification (Fig 1a and b). Acetylcholine receptor antibody titer was elevated up to 7.83 nmol/L. The mass was removed by median sternotomy and histologically diagnosed as extranodal marginal zone lymphoma of MALT arising from the thymus. Extensive amyloid deposition was noted within the tumor with a positive stain to Congo red, apple-green birefringence on polarized microscopy and binding of antibodies predominantly to kappa light chain. fig 1a.jpgfig 1b.jpg

      We report a case of thymic MALT lymphoma with extensive amyloid deposition. Unusual CT manifestation of extensive calcification can lead to difficulties in differential diagnosis of mediastinal masses.
