Abstract

The authors summarize clinical findings and radiological aspects of pleural malignant mesothelioma. This tumor, previously uncommon, is now observed with increasing frequency in developed countries (pathogenetic relationship with asbestos fibers inhalation is proved). Common and uncommon findings are described and 8 new cases are presented. Differential diagnosis between malignant mesothelioma and other primary or secondary pleural tumors is difficult and always requires a confirmation by multiple biopsies and/or thoracotomy. The usefulness of CT study in the accurate staging of mesothelioma is particularly emphasized. In this field CT may completely replace the conventional tomography.
