Abstract

Pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB) is a rare, aggressive, intrathoracic mesenchymal neoplasm associated with cystic lung lesions. The authors describe an 8-month-old male who underwent thoracoscopic left upper lobectomy for a cystic lung lesion initially diagnosed as congenital pulmonary airway malformation. Pathology revealed type I PPB.
