Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter considers the clinicopathologic features of pseudoneoplastic pulmonary and pleural lesions. They include pulmonary hamartomas, inflammatory pseudotumor, plasma cell granuloma, Rosai-Dorfman disease, extramedullary hematopoiesis, tumefactive manifestations of lung injury, peribronchiolar metaplasia, mesothelial hyperplasia, hyaline pleural plaques, and diffuse pleural fibrosis. The specialized morphologic features of those lesions are discussed, with emphasis on differential diagnosis with other pathologic entities.
