Rajendra Kumar  | Vijay Raturi | Manoj Jain | Dewesh Kishan | Madanlal Bhatt
Abstract: Pulmonary blastoma (PB) is a disease of early childhood. We have reported here a case of classic biphasic pulmonary blastoma (CBPB) in a young adult patient. This is intended at highlighting the fact, that PB occurs in adult individuals, though not a very common occurrence. Thus, high index of suspicion with typically well-defined radiological images may help in clinching diagnosis, though histopathological examination with immunohistochemical evaluation may establish the diagnosis at an early stage, which may be crucial in successful management of such cases.
