Primary pulmonary neurilemoma. Report of a case with ultrastructural examination


Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 100(12): 644-648
Primary pulmonary neurilemoma. Report of a case with ultrastructural examination
The electron microscopic features of a primary neurilemoma of the lung, a very rare neoplasm, were studied. Characteristic Schwann cells were present, with cytoplasm and elongated cytoplasmic processes coated with a basal lamina. The highly characteristic Luse bodies were also seen. We add electron microscopic corroboration to the previous tissue culture confirmation of this unusual benign pulmonary neoplasm.
