  Discussion. Pleuropulmonary blastoma is an aggressive tumor accounting for less than 1% of all primary malignant lung tumors in the pediatric population [].Manivel and associates coined the term PPB to describe a specific subtype of pulmonary blastoma on the basis of its exclusive clinical presentation in childhood and its pathologic features of variable anatomic Cited by: 3. Diagnostic Pathology of Pleuropulmonary Neoplasia highlights the morphologic basis, immunohistochemistry, electron microscopy, and molecular biology of tumoral and pseudotumoral conditions of the lung and volume also highlights the nuances in the diagnosis of lung and pleural conditions and the applications of today’s most recent studies in molecular biology, . A ROENTGEN SIGN OF PULMONARY INFARCTION descending pulmonary artery, ranging from 17 mm. to 26 ram., is seen with left pulmonary infarction. This is a reliable and early roentgen sign. Measure- ment of the descending pulmonary artery on chest roentgenogram is most important in the diagnosis of the pulmonary by: Pleuropulmonary disease was seen in 50 of 62 patients (81%) with proven tularemia. Radiographic findings included patchy subsegmental air space opacities (74%), hilar lymphadenopathy (32%), and ple Cited by:

Pleuropulmonary paragonimiasis is a food-borne parasitic disease caused by the lung fluke Paragonimus westermani, which is endemic in Southeast Asia and the Far East [].Human infection results from ingestion of raw freshwater crab or crayfish infected with the metacercaria.

RA is a systemic disease associated with relatively frequent and variable pleuropulmonary manifestations. This article reviews the common and potentially serious thoracic sequelae in terms of pleural disease, pulmonary nodules, airways disorders, and interstitial disease Cited by: 7.   Background: Pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB) is a rare tumor of the chest seen in young children and recently recognized as distinct from the pulmonary blastoma typically encountered in adults. Objective: The purpose of this study is to review and describe the findings of PPB on radiography and CT in four patients. Methods: Radiographs and CT findings were Cited by:

Soft-tissue synovial sarcoma mainly affects adolescents and young adults and has a mild male predominance. 1 However, primary pleuropulmonary synovial sarcoma occurs in adults. 4 Frazier et al. 8 reported an affected group that consisted of five men and seven women with a mean age of 37 years (range 17–68 years).Cited by: Pleuropulmonary blastoma is a rare entity having an incidence between % of all primary lung malignancies that occurs exclusively in children younger than 6 years.

Pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB) is a rare cancer originating in the lung or pleural occurs most often in infants and young children but also has been reported in adults. In a retrospective review of children with lung tumors, pleuropulmonary blastoma and carcinoid tumor were the most common primary tumors (83% of the children had secondary tumors spread from Specialty: Oncology.
