“…The association of a thymoma with chronic muco-cutaneous candidiasis was first reported in 1958 (Josse & Zaeks) and five other patients with this combination, but normal immunoglobulins, have subsequently been described (Baer et al, 1964;Montes et al, 1968;Schoch, 1971;Montes et al, 1972;Maize & Lynch, 1972). Myasthenia gravis was a feature in two of these individuals, polymyositis in one, and antinuclear antibodies of significant titre were found in another.…”

“…In three instances, restoration of immune competence with thymus grafts was accompanied by clearing of candidiasis (22)(23)(24). Candidiasis has also been observed in subjects with thymoma (25)(26)(27), and patients with chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis often fail to express delayed cutaneous hypersensitivity to candida extracts (15,28,29).…”
