The case report of a 54 years patient is described, who was admitted to Hermanos Ameijeiras Clinical-Surgical Teaching Hospital in Havana city due to fever, hypotension and diarrhea, to which complicated respiratory difficulty was added during his hospitalization and he required mechanical ventilator support in the Intensive Care Unit. As a radiographic finding, a shade in the left lung was observed that turned out to be a thymoma; while the blood test revealed hipogammaglobulinemia. It was decided to carry out conventional thymectomy by means of midline sternotomy, after which the patient had a favorable clinical course and was discharged from the hospital 10 days later.

Keywords : thymus; thymoma; thymectomy; Good syndrome; hipogammaglobulinemia.
