Abstract:


Pleural lipoma is an extremely rare benign tumor. A lesion homogeneity with smooth borders is a suggestive criterion of lipoma in the chest radiology. Tissue biopsy is usually required for the diagnosis and exclusion of liposarcoma. In this case report, we described a female patient diagnosed with a pleural lipoma which was discovered accidentally during a metastatic work up of a previously diagnosed squamous cell carcinoma in the left ala nasi. The diagnosis of the pleural lipoma was histopathologically confirmed with tru cut biopsy.
