Bottom Line: Malignant mesothelioma is a rare malignant neoplasm that arises from mesothelial surfaces of the pleural cavity, peritoneal cavity, tunica vaginalis, or pericardium.However, endobronchial lesions are rarely seen and cases diagnosed from bronchoscopic biopsy are also rarely reported.We reported the case of a 77-year-old male who was diagnosed as malignant mesothelioma on bronchoscopic biopsy from obstructing masses of the endobronchial lesion.

ABSTRACT
Malignant mesothelioma is a rare malignant neoplasm that arises from mesothelial surfaces of the pleural cavity, peritoneal cavity, tunica vaginalis, or pericardium. Typically, pleural fluid cytology or closed pleural biopsy, surgical intervention (video thoracoscopic biopsy or open thoracotomy) is conducted to obtain pleural tissue specimens. However, endobronchial lesions are rarely seen and cases diagnosed from bronchoscopic biopsy are also rarely reported. We reported the case of a 77-year-old male who was diagnosed as malignant mesothelioma on bronchoscopic biopsy from obstructing masses of the endobronchial lesion.

After 4 cycles of chemotherapy, decreased pleural effusion on chest radiography (A) and decreased peribronchial soft tissue thickening and pleural nodules in right middle lobe and right lower lobe were observed (B, C).

Figure 4: After 4 cycles of chemotherapy, decreased pleural effusion on chest radiography (A) and decreased peribronchial soft tissue thickening and pleural nodules in right middle lobe and right lower lobe were observed (B, C).

Mentions: Also after four cycle of chemotherapy, chest CT showed partial response, nodules of pleura were decreased in size and peribronchial soft tissue thickening was also decreased 4.0×2.3 cm to 3.3×1.3 cm (Figure 4).
