Chest wall implantation of tumor after percutaneous transthoracic fine-needle aspiration cytology
Abstract
A patient with non small-cell bronchogenic carcinoma, who underwent percutaneous transthoracic fine-needle aspiration cytology under the guidance of computed tomography, is presented. The patient developed implantation of the tumor in the muscles of the chest wall one year after the fine-needle aspiration cytology. It is emphasized that this diagnostic method should be applied only on patients for whom it is expected that the therapeutic decision will change on the basis of the cytological diagnosis.
