Abstract:   (178 Views)
Pulmonary lymphangitic carcinomatosis is the spread of a tumor to the lungs through the lymphatic system, which is a rare and final manifestation of cancer with a poor prognosis. Its main symptom is gradual and progressive dyspnea. The method of choice for diagnosis is high-resolution CT (HRCT), the most common finding of which is an increase in nodular and irregular septal thickness between the lobules with the formation of a network of dense polygons. Histological findings confirm the diagnosis. Here we present a patient with lymphangitic carcinomatosis in Bushehr, which occurred secondary to pulmonary adenocarcinoma.
Keywords: Lymphangitic carcinomatosis, Lung, Tumor, HRCT
