The authors present a radiographic image portraying the "thymic sail sign" and the "thymic wave sign," both normal findings in infant radiographs and present a short description of these signs. These are distinguished from pathologic findings such as the "spinnaker-sail sign" in pneumomediastinum.

Thymic carcinoma (TC) and thymic carcinoid (TCD) are aggressive thymic epithelial neoplasms with a poor prognosis. Due to rarity, little is known about their comparative clinical characteristics, trea...
Nevi and melanocytic proliferations are known to appear in multiple extracutaneous sites, including lymph nodes and meninges. We report a case of an anterior mediastinal mass in a patient with a giant...
BACKGROUND Hematoma expansion is associated with poor outcome in intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) patients. The spot sign and the blend sign are reliable tools for predicting hematoma expansion in ICH p...
Scarce information exists on the pathogenesis of thymic epithelial tumors (TETs), comprising thymomas, thymic carcinomas (TCs) and neuroendocrine tumors. C-reactive protein (CRP) increases during cert...
The management of thymic epithelial tumors is a paradigm of multidisciplinary collaboration. Chemotherapy may be administered as part of curative-intent sequential strategy integrating subsequent surg...
The intent of the study is to assess the antitumor activity of PHA-848125AC as second-line treatment in patients with recurrent or metastatic, unresectable thymic carcinoma previously trea...
This study aims to investigate the clinical activity of sunitinib in patients with advanced thymic carcinoma who have failed chemotherapy.
This is a Phase II single center, open-label, single arm study in patients with advanced thymic epithelial tumors after failure of cisplatin-based combination chemotherapy. Patients will b...
This is a retrospective analysis of biological characteristics of thymoma and thymic carcinoma patients.
To investigate the safety of thymic humoral factor (THF gamma 2), its effect on HIV load based on at least a 75 percent decrease in HIV quantitative PCR RNA copies/ml, and its persistence ...
A neoplasm originating from thymic tissue, usually benign, and frequently encapsulated. Although it is occasionally invasive, metastases are extremely rare. It consists of any type of thymic epithelial cell as well as lymphocytes that are usually abundant. Malignant lymphomas that involve the thymus, e.g., lymphosarcoma, Hodgkin's disease (previously termed granulomatous thymoma), should not be regarded as thymoma. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
Yellow discoloration of the SKIN; MUCOUS MEMBRANE; and SCLERA in the NEWBORN. It is a sign of NEONATAL HYPERBILIRUBINEMIA. Most cases are transient self-limiting (PHYSIOLOGICAL NEONATAL JAUNDICE) occurring in the first week of life, but some can be a sign of pathological disorders, particularly LIVER DISEASES.
Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX . It may be a sign of infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).or sign of a benign (not cancer) growth, such as a cyst or polyp or, in menopausal women, of low hormone levels. More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.
T-cell enhancement of the B-cell response to thymic-dependent antigens.
A thymus-dependent nonapeptide found in normal blood. Stimulates the formation of E rosettes and is believed to be involved in T-cell differentiation.
