We report an extremely rare case of an invasive thymoma with intracaval growth extending and directly invading the right atrium. Enbloc excision of the tumor with lobectomy and combined resection of the right atrium, and graft replacement of the superior vena cava were successfully performed during cardiopulmonary bypass. Invasive thymoma with this type of intracaval and intra-atrial progression is extremely rare.
