Thymoma is a relatively rare tumor. Thymoma can relapse after operation or radiochemotherapy. The definitions of recurrent thymoma have been made by ITMIG. It is necessary to find the risk factors for recurrence based on the clinicopathologic features. Masaoka stage, WHO histological type, tumor size and treatment modalities are all the risk factor of recurrent thymoma. The diagnosis of recurrence is very important for thymoma. Surgery is a main therapy for thymoma. Complete re-resection can achieve a better prognosis than non-surgical therapy or incomplete re-resection. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy are still the important non-surgical therapy. Other treatment, such as targeted therapy, immunotherapy and percutaneous cryoablation can be used in recurrent thymoma.
