Abstract:   (2077 Views)
We describe a case of pulmonary blastoma, a rare primary lung malignancy which affects a younger population. This tumor contains both mesenchymal and epithelial elements. Pulmonary blastoma tends to relapse locally and metastasizes mainly in the first few years. It has a poor 5-year prognosis, and shows a potentid radio-chemosensitivity. Because these tumors are considered malignant, surgical excision is recommended. In this paper, we describe a case of pulmonary blastoma in a 3 year old boy with a brief review of literature.
