Resumo

Os sarcomas primários do pulmão são neoplasias raras e potencialmente agressivas, que devem ser distinguidos de outros tumores pulmonares malignos e cujo comportamento biológico não está completamente esclarecido.

Os autores apresentam um caso clínico de sarcoma pleomórfico indiferenciado do pulmão, que foi diagnosticado a um homem de 66 anos. Na altura do diagnóstico foi realizada desobstrução brônquica por laser e radioterapia, tendo sido posteriormente observada uma sobrevivência superior a 11 anos.

Abstract

Primary sarcomas of the lung are uncommon, potentially aggressive neoplasms that need to be distinguished from other malignant pulmonary tumors and whose biological behavior is as yet not fully understood.

Primary undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma was diagnosed in the right lung of a 66 year-old man, who has survived over 11 years after treatment with endobronchial tumor debulking by laser therapy and radiotherapy.
