Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We herein report a case of primary bronchopulmonary fibrosarcoma in a 70-year-old man. The patient was referred to our hospital for investigation of hemosputum and an abnormal shadow. On admission, chest radiograph and computed tomography scan showed a mass lesion in right S3 and an infiltrative shadow in the right upper lobe. Transbronchial biopsy specimens showed findings of malignancy, and adenocarcinoma was suspected. A right pneumonectomy was performed, and pathologic examination confirmed a diagnosis of fibrosarcoma. The patient had an uneventful recovery and no sign of recurrence has been found in the year since his operation, although strict follow-up is essential.
