ABSTRACT

 

Pulmonary sclerosing pneumocytoma is a rare tumor originated from primitive respiratory epithelial cells. It’s a relatively benign tumor of the lung but has potential malignancy according to literatures reported. Herein, we reported a 42-year-old man who received video-assisted left upper lobectomy in our hospital on 22nd December 2016. The post operation pathology suggested pulmonary sclerosing pneumocytoma with peribronchial lymph nodes metastasis. The patient recovered well from operation.
