Title
Unexpected response of a pulmonary blastoma on radiotherapy : a case report and review of the literature
Author
Abstract
Pulmonary blastoma (PB) is a rare malignant tumor of the lung. Treatment is primarily surgical, although, combination chemotherapy has been reported to result in objective responses in inoperable tumors or after incomplete resections. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a very radiosensitive PB, which showed major tumor reduction after several fractions of radiotherapy without further tumor regression after additional chemotherapy with cisplatin and etoposide. The literature on the treatment of PB is reviewed. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
