Abstract

Pleuropulmonary blastoma is a rare primary malignant tumor originating from lungs and/or pleura. It is more frequent in young children and differs from other lung neoplasms by a number of histopathological particulars. We present a clinical case of such tumor in a 3-year-old child. Initially, the disease was diagnosed as pleuropneumonia, however, computed tomography revealed a tumor originating from mediastinum. Current data indicates that diagnostics of pleuropulmonary blastoms is difficult even with the use of a full range of radiation assessment methods and participation of qualified specialists.
