Thymus Dysfunction: Thymus dysfunction refers to impaired functioning of the thymus gland. The thymus gland is located beneath the breastbone and above the windpipe and heart. It is made up of lymphatic tissue and is believed to be responsible for supporting the development of the immune system from the fetal stage through to puberty. After puberty, the thymus gland tends to shrink. Dysfunction of the thymus gland primarily results in impaired immune system function and hence increased susceptibility to infections. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Thymus Dysfunction is available below.
