Abstract

 

The term phantom tumor may be used to describe a well-demarcated nodule in lung,
lacking transparency due to pleural effusion. Phantom tumors are generally associated with congestive heart failure that causetransudative pleural effusion within pulmonary fissures.Disappearance of the mass on the chest radiography following intensive diuretic therapy and heart failure regression reinforces the diagnosis of the lung pseudotumor. Appearances of phantom tumor of the lung may vary. Here, we present 4 cases with different manifestations.

 

 

Key words:

congestive heart failure, pleural effusion; radiography; chest X ray, diuretics

 

 

Sažetak

 

Termin fantom tumor se može iskoristiti da opiše dobro ograničen čvor u plućima u odsustvu transparentnosti prema pleuralnom izlivu. Fantom tumori su uglavnom udruženi sa kongestivnom srčanom insuficijencijom koja prouzrokuje transudativni pleuralni izliv unutar plućnih fisura. Nestanak ove mase na radiografiji grudnog koša usled intenzivne terapije diuriteicima i povlačenja srčane insuficijencije čvrsto dokazuje dijagnozu pseudo (lažnog) tumora pluća. Pojava fantom tumora u plućima može biti različito radiografski i klinički predstavljena. U ovom radu ćemo prikazati četiri slučaja sa različitim manifestacijama bolesti.

 

 

Ključne reči:

kongestivna srčana insuficijencija, pleuralni izliv, radiografija, rentgen grudnog koša, diuretici
