Summary Sarcomatoid carcinoma of the thymus is extremely rare. An operation remains the only effective treatment for this disease. We report a case of complete resection of thymic sarcomatoid carcinoma through a total aortic arch replacement and left upper lobectomy at our institution. Our aggressive operation was very effective, and the patient has experienced no recurrence in the 3 years since his operation.
