Hiradfar A, Pourlak T, Badebarin D - Iran J Cancer Prev (2015)

Bottom Line: Post-operative chemotherapy has shown the benefit in the cases of residual disease after initial surgery and metastatic disease in the literature.We have presented the case of a 70-days old male child with primary infantile fibrosarcoma of the left lung and distant metastasis of skull.The aim of this publication was to highlight the role of adjuvant chemotherapy to improve outcome of infantile fibrosarcoma with residual tumor and / or metastatic disease.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Pulmonary fibrosarcoma has been an extremely rare tumor in children. Wide surgical resection of infantile fibrosarcoma would be the treatment of choice.

Case presentation: Post-operative chemotherapy has shown the benefit in the cases of residual disease after initial surgery and metastatic disease in the literature. We have presented the case of a 70-days old male child with primary infantile fibrosarcoma of the left lung and distant metastasis of skull.

Conclusions: The aim of this publication was to highlight the role of adjuvant chemotherapy to improve outcome of infantile fibrosarcoma with residual tumor and / or metastatic disease.

A2328FIG1: A Large Lung Mass of Left Lower Lobe

Mentions: A chest radiography has shown an opacity in the lower part of the left lung. A computerized tomography (CT) of the thorax has revealed a well-defined heterogeneously enhancing mass measuring 45 mm × 40 mm in the lower lobe of the left lung (Figure 1A and 1B). There was no pleural effusion. Differential diagnoses has proposed by radiological service has included pulmonary sequestration and congenital adenomatoid malformation.
