Pulmonary consolidation and inflammation: inflammatory pseudotumour in young children
AbstractHere we report two children with a pulmonary inflammatory pseudotumour; a rare entity in children, that often initially presents as a pneumonia, but with the possibility of serious consequences if unrecognised and untreated. One of the children presented is 6 months which is extremely young for this tumour. Difficulties in presentation, management strategies and prognosis are described. Certainly, this is a condition that should be considered even in a very young child with an inflammatory condition presenting as a solid lesion in the lung which does not resolve or even progresses.
