Less than 1% of lung neoplasms are represented by benign tumors. Among these, hamartomas are the most common with an incidence between 0.025% and 0.32%. In relation to the localization, hamartomas are divided into intraparenchymal and endobronchial.Clinical manifestation of an endobronchial hamartoma (EH) results from tracheobronchial obstruction or(More)
BACKGROUND The pulmonary inflammatory pseudotumor (PIP) is a rare disease. It is still debated whether it represents an inflammatory lesion characterized by uncontrolled cell growth or a true neoplasm. PIP is characterized by a cellular polymorphism. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed 8 patients with PIP treated by surgery between 2001 and 2009.(More)
BACKGROUND Unfortunately, as of yet, most lung cancers are not operable as soon as diagnosis is available; in these situations chemo- and radio-therapy still play a key role, albeit palliative, improving survival rate moderately, but are not lacking in toxic effects, especially in case of concurrent pathology, reduced cardio-respiratory functionality or(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study is to assess, through the retrospective analysis of our experience and the literature review, whether the limited pulmonary resection is comparable to lobectomy for treatment of the peripheral stage IA (T1N0M0) non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC), in terms of oncologic radicality, survival and rate of local, regional and(More)
Bronchogenic mediastinal cysts (BMC) represent 18% of primitive mediastinal tumors and the most frequent cystic lesions in this area. Nowadays, BMC are usually treated by VATS. However, the presence of major adhesions to vital structures is often considered as an unfavourable condition for thoracoscopic treatment. The authors report the thoracoscopic(More)
Traumatic pulmonary pseudocyst is a very rare consequence of blunt chest trauma characterized by formation of cystic like parenchymal lesions. Generally multiple and bilateral distribution is more rare than a single localization. The computed tomography (CT) scan has an higher diagnostic value compared with conventional chest X-ray. Prognosis of traumatic(More)
The Authors, after extensive introduction on the incidence, etiology, classification, pathophysiology, possible complications, diagnosis and treatment of thoracic trauma, relate their experience on the last eight years, stressing the diagnostic and therapeutic strategy in management of trauma simple and complicated and assessing finally serious social(More)
Oral cavity infection by protozoarian agents may lead to pathologies such as stomatitis and gengivitis. An higher incidence has been reported in immunocompromised patients and in patients with dental disorders. Entoameba gingivalis localizes into oral cavity and in particular into interstitial and interdental spaces. Infection propagation to bronchial or(More)
