BOSCH, Juan J et al. Pleuropulmonary blastoma: case report. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2016, vol.114, n.1, pp.e25-e28. ISSN 0325-0075.

Pleuropulmonary blastoma is a rare lung tumor of childhood that can occur with cystic or solid lesions, as a radiological finding with or without respiratory symptoms. We report the case of a 2 year old toddler in his first pulmonary obstructive episode with suspected toracic malformation of the left upper lobe in his chest x-ray and tomography. Surgery was performed showing cystic malformation of the left upper lobe. We received the pathology report with diagnosis of type I pleuropulmonary blastoma. He began follow-up with Oncology initiating treatment with cyclophosphamide and vincristine, well tolerated.

Keywords : Respiratory system abnormalities; Pleuropulmonary blastoma; Thoracic neoplasms; Children.
