Cystic fibrohistiocytic tumour of the lung presenting with recurrent pneumothoraces: a case report
Cystic fibrohistiocytic tumour of the lung is a very rare pathological entity that occurs either as a primary pulmonary neoplasm or as a metastasis from skin lesions called cellular fibrous histiocytomas. Herein, we present the case of a 19-year old man with a history of recurrent pneumothoraces who was managed surgically and was eventually diagnosed with cystic fibrohistiocytic tumour of the lung. Clinicians should include this disease in the differential diagnosis of pulmonary cystic lesions and be aware of its association with cellular fibrous histiocytoma. Reporting of more cases is warranted to further elucidate the natural course of the disease and optimise its management.
