We report a case of cystic Hodgkin's disease of the thymus that was evaluated preoperatively by computed tomography (CT). Although this is an uncommon cause of an anterior mediastinal mass, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis along with cystic thymoma and cystic teratomas, since the treatment of these lesions is dramatically different. The CT appearance and pathology of this lesion are discussed.
