Endobronchial inflammatory pseudotumour exacerbating asthma

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    Primary pulmonary tumours are rare in the paediatric population. Of the benign tumours, the most common is the inflammatory pseudotumour (plasma cell granuloma). It can present as a variety of nonspecific symptoms which may delay diagnosis. It usually occupies a peripheral pulmonary location and gives rise to symptoms due to its local mass effect and destructive invasion. We report the case of an endobronchial inflammatory pseudotumour presenting as an exacerbation of asthma in a 10-year-old girl. Appropriate investigation lead to pre-operative diagnosis and early complete surgical resection. A good prognosis is anticipated.
