A 71-year-old woman admitted our hospital with anterior mediastinal tumor with polypoid lesion of the left brachiocepharic vein. The tumor (12.0×10.5×7.0 cm in diameter, 230 g) was resected completely, and the tumor invaded directly into the left brachiocepharic vein. The left brachiocepharic vein was resected and reconstructed with e-PTFE graft. The histological features both of the main tumor and polypoid lesion of the left brachiocepharic vein were showed type B2 invasive thymoma of WHO classification. She is well without any recurrent of thymoma, and the graft is still patent.
