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.

A2328FIG2: Proliferation of Neoplastic Cell

Mentions: Macroscopic examination has consisted of a lung lob measuring 50 × 40 × 20 mm. Cross-section shown a gray-white well circumscribed soft to firm mass with irregular brown border. Histological examination of tissue sections has revealed proliferation of neoplastic cells in lung tissue (Figure 2).
