The chapter on Nonneoplastic Thymic Lesions will cover the epidemiological, etiological and clinicopathological features of common thymic lesions (congenital and acquired cysts, including dysplasia); thymic follicular, rebound and “true” hyperplasia) as well as rare or recently described non-neoplastic thymic alterations that may form mass lesions and can mimic thymic neoplasms (“Lesa-like thymic hyperplasia”; “Cholesteroloma”; Fibrosing mediastinitis, including IgG4-related disease). Criteria concerning the broad spectrum of differential diagnoses will be highlighted.
