Abstract

Clinical, therapeutical observations and experience in 3 cases of pulmonary inflammatory pseudotumors (PIP) are presented. A retrospective analysis is made of cases with pulmonary "mass" suspected as malignant tumor, resected in a general surgery department between 1988 and 1995, and finally diagnosed as inflammatory pseudotumor. Three of the 10 cases originally diagnosed as malignant lung tumor were inflammatory pseudotumor (30%). Pulmonary inflammatory pseudotumors, may be a pitfall diagnosing a lung mass and implicate legal problems. Surgical resection leads to the final diagnosis in doubtful cases. A wide resection has a diagnostic aim and may preserve healthy parenchyma. Clinicians, pathologists and surgeons should accurately inform patients with doubtful diagnosis of pulmonary malignancy. Any decision should be kept all-together either choosing the simple observation or the timely surgical diagnostic and therapeutical approach.
