Endobronchial lipoma is benign lung tumor with an incidence of less 1% of all lung neoplasms. The case of 72 ‐year‐old man is presented with endobronchial lipoma arising from a‐subsegment of the left posterior basal segment (LB10a). Endobronchial lipoma is a rare cause of bronchial obstruction. Early identification and diagnosis of endobronchial lipoma can prevent damage of the lung parenchyma. Clinicians should be aware of this rare tumour. Bronchoscopic resection is the first choice of treatment, but surgical operation should be indicated in certain circumstances.

The objective of this study was to determine if routine preoperative CNB based on mass size is necessary, or if radiographic features can guide the need for CNB.

Authors: Theermann R, Ohlmeier M, Hartwig CH, Wolff M, Krenn V, Liewen C, Citak M, Gehrke T Abstract INTRODUCTION: Soft tissue swelling of the knee joint can be caused by many diseases. Lipomas are one of the most reasonable differential diagnoses we have to consider. Therefore, we now present the uncommon case of a Lipoma arborescens (LA) and differentiate it from a quite similar manifesting spindle cell lipoma as follows. CASE REPORT: A 49-years old patient reports about progressive knee pain for four years and observes an increasing joint swelling. This swelling is a soft tissue, shiftable tumour, not painfu...

CONCLUSION: Radiomics is a promising, non-invasive method for differentiating between WDLPS and lipoma, outperforming the scores of the radiologists. Further optimization and validation is needed before introduction into clinical practice. PMID: 31747074 [PubMed - in process]

The resection of distal airways obstructing tumours is a traditional indication of therapeutic bronchoscopy. Lung cancer is the most frequent cause of the obstruction. Takeout procedures of the benign tumours, endobronchial carcinoids and endobronchial metastases are considerably less frequent. These tumours can be removed completely, some of them definitively. Present work analyses experience with these tumours in one tertiary bronchological centre. During the period from 1993 to 2018, 29.121 bronchoscopies were performed and 124 benign tumours, 19 typical carcinoids (G1 NET) and 35 endobronchial metastases were removed. ...
