Pulmonary tumors in childhood are rare, but the majority are malignant. The histopathologic spectrum is quite diverse, including inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor, hamartoma, primary pulmonary paraganglioma, carcinoid tumor, mucoepidermoid carcinoma, pleuropulmonary blastoma, adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and sarcomas. Nonspecific clinical and radiological findings result in late and incorrect diagnoses. Although surgical resection is the initial and proper treatment method, additional adjuvant therapy is dependent on both tumor stage and histopathologic type.
