Primary thymic mucinous adenocarcinoma is an extremely rare type of thymic carcinoma that is resistant to radiation and chemotherapy. We present a case of primary thymic mucinous adenocarcinoma with disseminated metastases and rapid progression, after concurrent chemoradiation and platinum-based doublet chemotherapy. Case and literature review also revealed poor outcomes for primary thymic mucinous adenocarcinoma patients receiving surgery and adjuvant therapy. We concluded the poor response of either resectable or unresectable primary thymic mucinous adenocarcinoma.
