33, Sex: Male
History of recurrent respiratory tract infections
during the last year. Four (4) month ago, a
rounded pulmonary lesion was detected in the left
upper lung on a chest X-ray. Repeated pulmonary
radiological examinations revealed no further
growth of the lesion. Patient started to complain
of aches in left upper thorax one month ago and
broncoscopy is performed which was normal.
Further, the patient had left explorative
thoracoscopy with excision of a tumor
next to the parietal pleura.
Macroscopically the excised tissue measured
50 x 30 mm with an adherent tuberous tumor of 35
x 30 x 25 mm in size. The cross section surface
appeared russet to brownish with centrally gray
area of 8 mm in diameter. Apparently, the
tumor was excised completely.
Diagnosis: Hyperplastic lymph node
