  Introduction: Despite the high incidence of esophageal and thymic carcinoma in human being, co-existence of these two malignant lesions is very rare. In this study we have reported an 81 year old man with a huge mediastinal tumor (Thymoma) and Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) of esophagus.

  Case report: An 81 year old man presented with hiccups and progressive dysphagia for solids and was admitted in our hospital as a case of SCC of thoracic esophagus. Pre-operative evaluation showed a huge anterior mediastinal mass. The patient's past history goes back to about 4 years ago, when he was admitted in another center for ophthalmic surgery and chest radiography showed an anterior mediastinal mass. Because of his chief complaint (dysphagia), the patient underwent operation and through the left thoracotomy incision complete resection of mediastinal tumor and esophagectomy was done.

  Conclusion: Despite the high incidence of esophageal and thymic carcinoma in human being, co-existence of these two malignant lesions is very rare.
