SANTOS, João Meneses et al. Pulmonary MALT lymphoma : A rare form of lymphoma. Rev Port Pneumol [online]. 2007, vol.13, n.1, pp.137-142. ISSN 0873-2159.

The authors report a case of pulmonary MALT lymphoma in an asymptomatic patient with a chest radiograph showing bilateral infiltrates. The diagnosis was made by surgical lung biopsy performed by videoassisted thoracoscopy. The transbronchial lung and the transthoracic core-needle biopsies were non-diagnostic. The clinical and radiological features of the pulmonary MALT lymphoma are described and relevant diagnostic, prognostic and treatment factors are discussed.

Keywords : MALT lymphoma; pulmonary MALT lymphoma; surgical lung biopsy.
