The association of primary acquired hypogammaglobulinemia and a thymic tumor was first described by Good (1) in 1954. In 1960 Gafni, Michaeli, and Heller (2) reported on 2 patients with these two affections, and they traced in the literature among 44 patients with primary acquired hypogammaglobulinemia 4 combinations with thymoma (1, 3-5). Recently another four cases have been published (6-9), so that as far as we know a total of ten cases is known.
The present paper is the case report of an adult woman, in whom primary acquired hypogammaglobulinemia developed 12 years after the discovery of a mediastinal tumor
