Dr Anandita Milind Desai, Dr Ajay Naik
Pleuro pulmonary blastoma is a rare form of potentially aggressive pulmonary malignancy seen in children less than 6 years of age. We have studied a case of a 2 year old child who presented to our surgical out patient department with complaints of fever, cough and breathlessness since 8 days and after thorough evaluation was diagnosed with Pleuro pulmonary blastoma and was treated for the same. Pleuro pulmonary blastoma is classified into three subtypes: biphasic pleuro pulmonary blastoma which consists of an epithelial and mesenchymal component, well differentiated foetal adenocarcinoma which consists of well differentiated epithelium and a mesenchymal component and malignant pleuro pulmonary blastoma. The prognosis of the malignant variant is extremely poor and it is an aggressive type of cancer.
