Abstract

A 67-year-old woman with a history of uterine body cancer was admitted because of a nodular shadow in the right lower lobe on chest computed tomography. We planned thoracoscopic resection for diagnosis. Thoracoscopically, the tumor was seen through the visceral pleura as a round yellow nodule close to the inferior pulmonary vein, and it was soft on palpation with surgical forceps, which was consistent with intrapulmonary lipoma. We therefore performed thoracoscopic enucleation. Histological examination confirmed an intrapulmonary lipoma. We report the first case of intrapulmonary lipoma which was enucleated thoracoscopically.
