Pleuropulmonary blastoma is one of the rarest tumours occurring in childhood. The pathogenesis and therapeutic management of this condition remain controversial. We report the case of an 8-month-old girl with cystic pleuropulmonary blastoma (type 1), presenting with respiratory distress and a tension pneumothorax. The clinical and radiological aspects of the pleuropulmonary blastoma are also discussed.
