Abstract

Pulmonary adenofibroma is a rare benign soft-tissue tumor composed of epithelial and stromal components, both of which are histologically benign. We report a case of pulmonary adenofibroma in a patient with occasional finding of a solitary pulmonary nodule in a CT-scan performed during the staging for a testicular tumor. The therapeutic approach was driven by the positive anamnesis for testicular neoplasm, by the positive PET-scan and most of all by the fact that the lesion was shrinking during chemotherapy and increased in dimension during the follow-up period without adjuvant therapy.
