Images in pediatrics: The thymic sail sign and thymic wave sign.
Summary of "Images in pediatrics: The thymic sail sign and thymic wave sign."
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 tumors represent 0.2-1.5 % of all malignancies with an incidence of 0.15 per 100,000 population. Thymic tumors are most common tumors of the anterior mediastinum accounting for 20 % of all medi...
Cervical thymic cysts are nearly 0.3% of all congenital cervical cysts. Thymic cysts are asymptomatic, but they rarely complain of dysphagia or tracheal obstruction symptoms. A soft, mobile, and painl...
Thymic tumors are rare mediastinal tumors, which are considered as orphan diseases due to their low prevalence. The most recent histologic classification divides thymic tumors into thymomas, thymic ca...
Thymic carcinoma is a rare neoplasm of the thymus. Systemic chemotherapy is an important therapeutic modality for thymic carcinoma. However, no standard chemotherapy for this carcinoma has yet been es...
Cervical thymic cysts are rare lesions often misdiagnosed clinically as branchial cyst. Here we report a rare case of multiloculated thymic cyst in a young 8 year old male child on the left side of t...
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 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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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.
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.
The return of a sign, symptom, or disease after a remission.
