Abstract: Thymic pathology occurs in 80–90% of myasthenia gravis patients. Significant associations between different thymic alterations and clinical findings are discussed. To highlight peculiarities in thymoma-associated myasthenia gravis, we briefly review myasthenia gravis associated with thymic lymphofollicular hyperplasia (TFH) and thymic atrophy.
