Patient information: Female, 61 years old
Medical history: Referral from our outpatient clinic to follow up an atelectasis of the left upper lobe caused by a central tumor mass.
Lung biopsy tissue with formations of small cell lung cancer (NEC 3), bronchial mucosa with squamous cell metaplasia.
Examination of the transition area between the lateral wall of the distal left main bronchus and the left upper lobe revealed a plain submucosal foreign tissue infiltration extending to a convex stenosis of the lumen of left upper lobe stem bronchus. This results in a subtotal occlusion of the left upper lobe. Especially TXI mode highlights visibilty of mucosal foreign tissue mass in this case.
