Abstract

We report a rare case of classic pulmonary blastema (CPB) without recurrence for 3 years after the operation. A 70-year-old man presented with cough and sputum for a month. Chest computed tomography (CT) showed a 5cm-sized mass in the right middle lobe. Bronchoscopic examination was performed, and the mass was suspected as adenocarcinoma of the lung. Right middle lobectomy and lymph node dissection were performed. The pathologic histology diagnosis was classic pulmonary blastoma, a subtype of biphasic pulmonary blastoma.
