GAUDIANO, Javier; DE BETOLAZA, Sofía  and  GONZALEZ, Mariana. Soft-tissue metastasis: atypical presentation of bronchopulmonary cancer. Rev. Urug. Med. Int. [online]. 2017, vol.2, n.2, pp.52-57. ISSN 2393-6797.

Soft tissue metastases are rare but not exceptional. The primitive tumor that most frequently produces them is lung cancer. The most relevant differential diagnosis is sarcoma which has a very similar clinical and imaging presentation, requiring in most cases of histology and inmunohistochemistry to distinguish between them. In this article we describe a complex case of a 46 year old male patient, smoker, who had a pleural effusion and a soft tissue mass as the first manifestations of a lung adenocarcinoma.

Keywords : soft tissue metastases; sarcoma; lung cancer..
