Mesenchymal Tumors of the Lungs

  • Annikka Weissferdt
  • Cesar A. Moran


Primary mesenchymal tumors of the lung are uncommon tumors that often resemble their counterparts in the soft tissue. Both benign and malignant tumors of mesenchymal origin may arise from the bronchopulmonary system. These may be of single lineage differentiation and show fibroblastic, muscle, cartilage and bone, adipose, myxoid, neurogenic, or neuroectodermal features or be composed of heterogenous cell types like hamartomas or malignant triton tumor. The incidence for these tumors is very low and based on the current literature it appears that primary pulmonary sarcomas account for less than 1 % of all primary lung tumors.
