Mesenchymal Tumors, Part I: Tumors of Fibrous, Fibrohistiocytic, and Muscle Origin

  • Armando E. Fraire
  • David H. Dail

Abstract

Tumors generally regarded as fibrous or fibrohistiocytic in nature include inflammatory pseudotumors (inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors), intrapulmonary localized fibrous tumors, cystic fibrohistiocytic tumors, cystic mesenchymal hamartomas, malignant fibrous histiocytomas, and fibrosarcomas. In recognition of their greater frequency in the pleura, localized fibrous tumors (LFTs) are primarily discussed in Chapter 43 on pleural neoplasms; in this chapter only the intrapulmonary variants of LFTs are considered. Likewise, in view of their greater frequency in younger age groups, inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors and congenital peribronchial myofibroblastic tumors are discussed in Chapter 42 on pediatric tumors.
