Hyperdense endobronchial mass - a rare manifestation of metastatic melanoma

J Clin Imaging Sci. 2014 Feb 25;4:7. doi: 10.4103/2156-7514.127833. eCollection 2014.

Abstract

Parenchymal lung metastases are common in malignant melanoma. However, endobronchial metastatic melanoma is uncommon. In this report, we describe a patient with a hyperdense endobronchial mass diagnosed as a melanoma metastasis. We review the imaging findings of pulmonary metastatic melanoma and discuss the differential diagnosis of an endobronchial mass in adults.

Keywords: Endobronchial; melanoma; metastasis; multidetector computed tomography.
