Thymomas originates from the epithelial cells of thymic tissue. These tumors commonly occur in the anterior mediastinum. However, thymomas can arise anywhere from the aberrant or remnant thymus in the neck or mediastinum. Ectopic cervical thymoma is a rare disease. It is important to be aware that cervical masses can also be thymomas rather than thyroid or parathyroid masses. Here, we present a case of a 62-year-old female who presented with swelling in the neck and was diagnosed with cervical thymoma type AB.
