ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Adenocarcinoma of the lung.

History: 86 year old female with history of esophageal cancer status post esophagectomy presents with unexplained weight loss (30 pounds over past 2 years). 18-FDG PET/CT performed.

Findings: 1.2 x 1.4 cm left lower lobe ground glass pulmonary nodule without significant metabolic activity. Of note, chest CT one year prior showed correlating 1.0 cm pulmonary nodule.

Ddx: Infection/Inflammation: Atypical or early bacterial. Tumor: Low grade (e.g., bronchioloalveolar) or well differentiated adenocarcinoma; mucinous tumors (e.g., bronchioloalveolar); carcinoid; mucoepidermoid carcinoma; adenoid cystic carcinoma; pleomorphic carcinoma. Most metastasis and lymphoma are unlikely given the lack of significant activity.

Dxhow: CT-guided needle biopsy.

Exam: Pleasant, high functioning elderly female without abnormal physical exam abnormalities.

No MeSH data available.
