The article reports that pulmonary adenocarcinoma with a localized extrapulmonary growth pattern presenting as a localized pleural tumor has not previously been disabled. Primary lung cancer mimicking pleural neoplasm--"pseudomesotheliomatous carcinoma" is considered to represent a type of peripheral lung adenocarcinoma with a distinctive diffuse growth pattern. The clinical similarities between the present case and pseudomesotheliomatous carcinoma are the marked extrapulmonary growth and the presence of a small subpleural nodule. Although the pattern of recurrence also showed a localized pleural mass, surgery for metastases can improve survival.

    Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most prevalent histological cancer subtype worldwide. As the majority of patients present with invasive, metastatic disease, it is vital to understand the basis for lung cancer progression. Hmga2 is highly expressed in metastatic lung adenocarcinoma, in...

    Primary synovial sarcoma of kidney is an uncommon neoplasm, metastasizing most commonly to lung. Surgery and/or palliative chemotherapy for pulmonary metastases is commonly used to improve tumor control and survival. Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is a relatively new approach to treat...
