Incidental inflammatory pseudotumour lung: A report of two cases

Sadaf Sheikh, Saulat Hasnain Fatimi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Two unusual cases of inflammatory pseudotumours of the lung are described. A 14 year old boy who presented with a history of weight loss and clubbing was incidentally found to have a solitary circumscribed mass in right lower lobe as was treated with lobectomy. The second patient, a 51 year old female, presented initially with left arm pain, was evaluated for ischemic heart disease and was then found to have a left small upper lobe mass. She presented again, a few months later, with an expaned lung mass that necessitated a lobectomy. Both cases indicate the need for early and complete removal of the inflammatory pseudotumours.
