Computed tomography imaging of subpleural lipoma in two men: two case reports


Karlo, C A; Stolzmann, P; Frauenfelder, T; Donati, O F; Leschka, S (2010). Computed tomography imaging of subpleural lipoma in two men: two case reports. Journal of Medical Case Reports, 4:380.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Subpleural lipomas are very rare pleural lesions and are often discovered incidentally in asymptomatic patients on conventional radiographs.
CASE PRESENTATIONS: We report two cases of subpleural lipomas and describe their imaging characteristics on chest radiographs and computed tomography. We describe the cases of two Caucasian men, aged 77 and 62 years old.
CONCLUSIONS: For non-invasive diagnostic investigation, computed tomography enables the identification and quantification of these tumors due to their characteristic fat attenuation.
