Dendriform pulmonary ossification

Ossificação pulmonar dendriforme

Andrezza Araújo de Oliveira Duarte, Jorge Nakatani, Moacyr Pezati Rigueiro, Tânia Saad

J Bras Pneumol.2006;32(3):270-273

Abstract PDF PT PDF EN Portuguese Text

Diffuse pulmonary ossification is a rare condition of unknown pathogenesis in which mature bone is found in the pulmonary parenchyma. It is almost invariably discovered as an incidental finding at autopsy. Most commonly, it affects middle-aged men and is asymptomatic. We present the case of a 75-year-old man in which the chest X-ray showed diffuse interstitial infiltrate. Diagnosis was based on histopathological examination by open-lung biopsy, which revealed interstitial fibrosis with pulmonary ossification.

Bronchial glomus tumor with right upper lobe atelectasis

Tumor glômico endobrônquico com atelectasia de lobo superior direito

Artur Eugênio de Azevedo-Pereira, Moacyr Pezati Rigueiro, Fernando Conrado Abrão

J Bras Pneumol.2010;36(3):-

Abstract PDF PT PDF EN Portuguese Text

Glomus tumors are uncommon benign soft tissue neoplasms. We report the case of a 32-year-old male who presented with right upper lobe atelectasis due to an endobronchial tumor. The patient underwent right upper lobectomy and wedge bronchoplasty. The pathological diagnosis was bronchial glomus tumor. To our knowledge, this presentation (with right upper lobe atelectasis) has never before been reported. Glomus tumor should be considered in the differential diagnosis of endobronchial lesions causing lobar atelectasis.


Keywords: Glomus tumor; Bronchial neoplasms; Thoracic surgical procedures.
