ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Atypical Pulmonary Hamartoma

History: 58 yo man presented with neck pain to his primary care physician. An MRI of the cervical spine was obtained revealing an abnormal finding.

Findings: T2 weighted axial MR image reveals a well-marginated mass with smooth borders in the left lung at the level of the aortic arch, which demonstrates multiple small foci of increased T2 signal intensity, giving the mass a speckled appearance. Contrast enhanced axial CT image shows a homogeneous, well-marginated, solid mass with minimal contrast enhancement in the left upper lobe. No fat or calcification is evident.

Ddx: • Tuberculoma • Metastatic Disease • Carcinoid Tumor • Adenocarcinoma • Small-cell carcinoma • Pulmonary hamartoma

Dxhow: Patient underwent biopsy, with histological evaluation.

No MeSH data available.
