Good's syndrome is the association of thymoma with immunodeficiency, characterized by hypogammaglobulinaemia, depleted B-cells, diminished T-cells and inversion of the CD4/CD8 ratio. The initial clinical presentation is either with a mass lesion-thymoma that is usually benign, or with recurrent infections due to immunodeficiency. Thymectomy usually favourably affects associated conditions, such as pure red cell aplasia, but does not improve hypogammaglobulinaemia, thus the patient remains… Expand
