A case of thymoma was diagnosed by fine‐needle aspiration cytology based on an intimate admixture of a biphasic cell population consisting of epithelial cells and lymphocytes from an intrathoracic mass. The diagnosis was later confirmed by light and electron microscopic examination of the tissue. Diagn Cytopathol 1987;3:166–169.
