Core Tip This editorial provides insights into a recently published clinical case report detailing the experience of a 39-year-old male patient afflicted with a multilocular thymic cyst concurrent with an anterior mediastinal infection. Regrettably, the condition was initially misdiagnosed as a malignant thymic tumor and subsequently managed surgically. Our analysis delves into the factors contributing to this misdiagnosis and outlines enhanced methods for differential diagnosis. It is our hope that this discussion will prompt medical professionals to prioritize imaging-based differential diagnosis and adopt a more comprehensive clinical perspective, thereby reducing the occurrence of clinical misdiagnosis.
