Pleural effusion and thrombocytosis as late onset of a thoracic malignant hemangiopericytoma. A case report
Mugnaini L., Laurendi G., Petroianni A., Giosuè S., Bisetti A.
We report the case of late onset of primary thoracic hemangiopericytoma in a 69-year-old woman who presented massive pleural effusion and associated thrombocytosis. Diagnosis was performed with immunohistochemical examination using monoclonal antibodies. This tumor is difficult to predict in its biologic course and thoracic localization is very rare and considered highly malignant.
