Congenital Askin tumor with favorable outcome: Case report and review of the literature

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Several disorders may present as cystic complex lesions of the fetal thorax, both with benign and malignant behavior. As a consequence, their detection may pose diagnostic, therapeutic, and parental counseling dilemmas. We describe a neonate with a congenital Askin tumor, diagnosed at the 37th week of gestation and treated after birth. Counseling and treatment challenges are discussed.
