Pleural lipoma an incidental finding: A case report
Sandeep Krishna Nalabothu, Sumalatha Chittiboyina
Lipomas are benign, encapsulated, homogeneous, mesenchymal, slow growing tumors composed of adult adipose tissue and occasionally fibrous stroma. Lipoma originating from the pleura is a very rare entity. Most patients remain asymptomatic and the lipoma is found incidentally on a chest radiograph or a computed tomography (CT) scan. Since only a few cases have been published in the recent literature, here we present a case of pleural lipoma, which is of intrathoracic variety with imaging findings from chest radiograph and CT examinations.
