1/54. Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the lung (inflammatory pseudotumor): uncommon cause of solitary pulmonary nodule.

    lung inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor is an uncommon cause of solitary lung nodule (0.7 % of lung tumors). The principal site of inflammatory pseudotumor is the lung, but it can also occur elsewhere in various organs. Although benign, they may be locally very aggressive. Recurrent and multifocal forms have been described. Since they are likely to mimic malignant neoplasms, accurate histopathologic diagnosis is necessary in order to guide appropriate surgical excision and avoid aggressive treatments. We report a case of lung involvement in a young adult with radiologic and pathologic correlations. (+info)

2/54. Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour of the lung manifesting as progressive atelectasis.

    A 6-year-old girl with an inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour of the lung is presented. The radiological features of this lesion are often atypical, as in this case, presenting as progressive atelectasis. The differential diagnosis is extensive and can be difficult, despite modern imaging techniques. (+info)

3/54. Inflammatory pseudotumor: a controversial entity.

    Inflammatory pseudotumor of the lung is considered to be a rare, benign, neoplastic lesion, consisting mainly of spindle mesenchymal cells, sometimes in such a way that its histological appearance mimics that of a spindle cell sarcoma, fibrous histiocytoma or fibrosarcoma. On the occasion of a case managed in our department, the literature is reviewed, in an attempt to clarify some issues concerning this tumor. Emphasis is given to complete resection of the tumor for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Malignant behavior may occur and recurrence is possible. (+info)

4/54. dermatomyositis as a presentation of pulmonary inflammatory pseudotumor (Myofibroblastic tumor).

    Inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) is a rare pulmonary tumor of uncertain etiology that usually presents as an asymptomatic radiographic finding. We describe a case of pulmonary IPT presenting as dermatomyositis with complete resolution following surgical resection. (+info)

5/54. Pulmonary inflammatory pseudotumour in children.

    Inflammatory pulmonary pseudotumour is an uncommon, non-neoplastic, occasionally aggressive spindle cell proliferative process of uncertain nosology. It has distinctive histopathological features and benign clinico-biological behaviour with multifocal lesions or recurrences in a minority of cases. Recognition of this entity is of paramount importance because it has considerable therapeutic and prognostic implications. The radiological features of two patients with pulmonary pseudotumour that was confirmed on histopathological examination are described. (+info)

6/54. Inflammatory pseudotumor of the lung.

    Inflammatory pseudotumors of the lung are uncommon in the thoracic surgical literature. These masses resemble carcinoma of the lung radiographically and are discovered only at time the of histologic review of the resected specimen. We report a case of inflammatory pseudotumor that was excised without pulmonary resection, although it completely filled the right hemithorax. We think it was the greatest inflammatory pseudotumor in the English literature. (+info)

7/54. Bilateral orbital pseudotumor with suprasellar and pulmonary involvement: report of a case.

    A 39-year-old man had bilateral proptosis and blurred vision for I week. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed signs of bilateral orbital pseudotumor, a suprasellar mass, and pulmonary infiltration. Biopsies from retrobulbar and bronchial sites showed similar inflammatory tissue. His disease resolved with pulsed corticosteroid therapy. (+info)

8/54. Endobronchial inflammatory pseudotumor of the lung.

    Inflammatory pseudotumor (also called plasma cell granuloma, histiocytoma and x-anthofibroma) is a benign, slow growing lesion which may present with cough, dyspnea, hemoptysis and unresolving pneumonia or can be discovered radiographically as a localised lesion. It has been reported in individuals up to 70 years old, but approximately two-thirds have developed in individuals under 30 years of age. The sex incidence is approximately equal. Inflammatory pseudotumors of the lung are usually peripheral lesions but may occasionally be endobronchial. We report the case of an endobronchial inflammatory pseudotumor in a 17-year-old girl who presented with unresolving right-sided pneumonia. Appropriate radiological, bronchoscopic and histopathological investigations lead to accurate pre-operative diagnosis and early complete surgical resection through a limited right main bronchus incision (bronchotomy). The patient made good postoperative recovery and an excellent prognosis is anticipated. (+info)

9/54. Inflammatory pseudotumour of lung.

    Inflammatory pseudotumour of lung is a rare benign lung tumour of uncertain aetiology. It is difficult to distinguish clinically as well as histologically from inflammatory lesions, hamartomas and neoplasms. Only two such cases have been reported from india earlier. We report one such case, that was clinically misdiagnosed as neuroblastoma. (+info)

10/54. Co-existing granular cell tumor and adenocarcinoma of the lung: a case report and review of the literature.

    granular cell tumor (GCT) of the lung is a rare tumor, constituting less than 10% of all GCTs. It is a multicentric tumor and infiltrates into adjoining tissue, but malignant GCT of the lung has not been reported. diagnosis is usually obtained with bronchoscopic biopsy. Treatment options include bronchoscopic extirpation, laser therapy, and sleeve resection. We present a case of GCT co-existing with adenocarcinoma of the lung and review the literature. (+info)
