Obstructing endobronchial fibrous histiocytoma: potential for lung salvage.

Abstract

In the past 10 years two children, ages 3 1/2 and 7 years, have been seen with central endobronchial fibrous histiocytoma causing complete atelectasis. Each child had a 4- to 6-month history of cough, dyspnea and fever. After antibiotic failure, x-rays demonstrated complete unilateral lung collapse. Bronchoscopy in case 1 demonstrated total occlusion of the… (More)
