SANTOS, Analía et al. Sarcoma de la arteria pulmonar. Rev. am. med. respir. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.2, pp.177-178. ISSN 1852-236X.

Pulmonary artery sarcoma is a rare tumor with lethal prognosis. Its etiology is unknown; most frequently the pulmonary trunk and its main branches are affected. Magnetic resonance imaging with gadolinium and positron emission tomography are complementary studies that can guide the diagnosis, but this can only be established with the histological study. We present this case because of the low incidence and its importance in the differential diagnosis of pulmonary thromboembolism.

Keywords : Pulmonary artery sarcoma.
