Background: Thymic carcinoma is a rare malignant disease with sparse data for treatment and prognosis. We intended to investigate the prognostic factors of thymic carcinoma. Material and Method: Data of 42 patients, who were diagnosed and treated for thymic carcinoma from January of 1986 to August of 2003 were reviewed retrospectively. Influences of characteristics of patients, Masaoka stage, histologic grade, completeness of resection and adjuvant treatment on survival were evaluated. Result: There were 30 male and 12 female patients and their mean age was 52.0⁑15.7 years old. There were 28 patients with low-grade histology and 13 patients with high- grade histology. Clinical stage according to Masaoka stage were I in 2, II in 2, III in 15 (35.7%), IVa in 10 (23.8%), and IVb in 13 (31%) patients. Surgical resection was done in 22 patients. Complete resection was possible in 13 patients and incomplete resection was done in 9 patients. Among 20 patients without resection, 8 patients received chemotherapy, 7 patients received radiotherapy and 5 patients received combined therapy. Median survival time was 31.7⁑6.1 months and 5 year survival rate was 28.6%. High grade histology (hazard ratio=3.009, 95% confidence interval=1.178∼7.685, p=0.021) and incompleteness of resection (hazard ratio=3.605, 95% confidence interval=1.154∼11.580, p=0.023) were the prognostic factors of thymic carcinoma. Conclusion: In thymic carcinoma, low grade histology is a good prognostic factor and complete resection can prolong the survival of patients.
