Multiple pulmonary metastases of benign meningioma

Múltiplas metástases pulmonares de meningioma benigno

Adalberto Sperb Rubin, Liliana Gomes Pellegrin, Nelson da Silva Porto, Geraldo Geyer.

Meningiomas account for approximately one-sixth of all primary neoplasms of the central nervous system and rarely present extracranial metastases. A finding of multiple metastases is rare, as is the presence of respiratory symptoms. Herein, we report the case of a 67-year-old female patient presenting subacute onset of respiratory symptoms. The patient had undergone resection of a benign intracranial meningioma six months prior, but had no history of lung disease. Upon examination, multiple pulmonary metastases, originating from the primary tumor, were observed.

Inflammatory pseudotumor in childhood

Pseudotumor inflamatório em criança pré-escolar

Maura Malcon, Nilton Haertel Gomes, Valéria Jorge, Geraldo Geyer

J Bras Pneumol.2001;27(5):279-281

Abstract PDF PT

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.

Endobronchial inflammatory pseudotumor: a case report

Pseudotumor inflamatório endobrônquico: relato de caso

Pablo Gerardo Sanchez, Gabriel Ribeiro Madke, Eduardo Sperb Pilla, Rafael Foergnes, José Carlos Felicetti, Enio do Valle, Geraldo Geyer

J Bras Pneumol.2007;33(4):484-486

Abstract PDF PT PDF EN Portuguese Text

Inflammatory pseudotumor of the lung is a rare form of benign neoplasia and is generally characterized by a solitary pulmonary nodule. The endobronchial presentation is uncommon. Conservative surgery remains the treatment of choice, and surgeons should always strive to achieve tumor-free margins due to the possibility of local recidivism. This article reports the case of a 36-year-old male patient with recurrent attacks of wheezing and cough. The patient underwent successful bronchoplasty for the resection of an endobronchial inflammatory pseudotumor.


Keywords: Granuloma, plasma cell; Coin lesion, pulmonary; Surgery.
