Benign thymus with stress

See also: Talk:Congenital_heart_disease#Septectomy.


The section shows thymus with normal cortical and medullary development. The corticomedullary junction is well demarcated; however, there is an increase in histiocytes within the cortex and focal degenerative changes of thymic corpuscles. There is no depletion of cortical lymphocytes.

Final diagnosis

Thymus, incidental thymectomy:
- Architecturally normal thymus with mild physiologic stress effects.
