Abstract

A 70-year-old woman was admitted for surgical treatment of a thymoma. She underwent thymectomy with left brachiocephalic vein resection because of invasion. Left pleural effusion appeared from postoperative day 4 and resolved with drainage. Herein, we report a rare case of pleural effusion associated with brachiocephalic vein resection.
