MALDONADO, Lorena V. et al. Bilateral pneumothorax complicating cavitary pulmonary metastases in angiosarcoma. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2014, vol.74, n.3, pp.227-228. ISSN 0025-7680.

Metastatic pulmonary angiosarcomas are a common complication of a rare condition. Generally, they are presented as peripheral solid nodules, infiltrates, and pleural effusions. We report the case of a 65 year-old man with bilateral recurrent pneumothorax secondary to metastatic cavitary lesions from angiosarcoma of the scalp. In this case, videothoracoscopy allowed tumor resection, inspection, and pleurodesis. There weren't complications or tumor recurrence at six months follow up.

Keywords : Pneumothorax; Cavitary pulmonary metastasis; Pleurodesis.
