Abstract

MALCON, MAURA; GOMES, NILTON HAERTEL; JORGE, VALÉRIA  and  GEYER, GERALDO. Inflammatory pseudotumor in childhood. J. Pneumologia [online]. 2001, vol.27, n.5, pp. 279-281. ISSN 0102-3586.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-35862001000500010.

The authors described a case of a five year old boy having an inflammatory pseudotumor (fibrohistiocytic granuloma) in the left upper lobe. Surgical excision was undertaken, and the four year outcome was favorable. These tumors are rare and can simulate sarcomas, so that a radical excision is considered the diagnostic procedure and the treatment of choice as well.

Keywords : Inflamatory pseudotumor; Childhood; Plasma cell pulmonary granuloma.
