Residency Program - Case of the Month
May 2012 - Presented by Michael Van Ness, M.D.
The patient is an 86 year old male with a past medical history significant for diabetes mellitus and hypertension who was incidentally found to have a left lung mass discovered on chest radiographs (during work-up for dull chest pain). Follow up chest CT showed a well circumscribed 4x2x1cm pleural based peripheral lung mass which was attached by a broad pedicle. He subsequently underwent VATS procdure for excision.
