Pediatric endobronchial inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor: a case report and review of the literature
AbstractInflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) belongs to the group of soft tissue tumor and could occur at any anatomical site from the central nervous system to gastrointestinal tract. The lung and abdomen are commonly affected sites, however, pulmonary IMT is predominantly located within the parenchyma rather than presenting as endobronchial lesion. IMTs may occur in any age group, but they are observed most commonly in children and adolescents. Here, we present a case of IMT arising from the left main stem bronchus in a 10-year-old girl.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
