Abstract

BACKGROUND: Primary pulmonary paragangliomas are rare tumors. To our knowledge, there is no prior report on fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in pulmonary paraganglioma. CASE: A 34-year-old man presented with an incidentally found solitary pulmonary mass. FNAC showed papillarylike clusters of epithelioid cells with round to oval nuclei, evenly dispersed chromatin, micronucleoli and occasional anisonucleosis. These cytologic features were suggestive of a sclerosing hemangioma or bronchioloalveolar carcinoma. A right lower lobectomy revealed a primary pulmonary paraganglioma. CONCLUSION: The possibility of pulmonary paraganglioma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of FNAC showing pseudopapillary clusters of epithelioid cells.
