Pathology of Endobronchial Lipoma
Dr Sampurna Roy MD April 2015
lipoma is a very rare benign tumour.
The tumour may cause bronchial obstruction, leading to extensive distal lung parenchymal damage.
Grossly, the lesions are well-circumscribed, soft, yellow nodules that usually range in size from 1.2 to 3.0 cm in greatest diameter.
Histologically, the tumours resembles lipomas in other locations (they are composed of mature adipose tissue devoid of atypia).
Bronchoscopic resection should be considered as the first choice of treatment for endobronchial lipoma, however, surgical therapy is indicated for patients who show the possibility of a complicated malignant tumour, who have destructive peripheral lung disease, who have extrabronchial growth, or who may have technical difficulties during the bronchoscopic procedure.
