Author: Khan, Javaid Ahmad (Scholar); Ahangar, Abdul Gani (Guide); Shah, Azra (Guide)
Abstract: It investigated fifty (50) patients on account of cough followed by hemoptysis, chest pain, breathlessness. A detailed history was taken, clinical examination performed and provisional diagnosis attempted. Routine and special investigations like x-ray chest, coagulogram and pulmonary functions tests were performed. Ultra sound and CT scan were done in some patients. Bronchoscope was done whenever needed. Needle biopsy was carried out which provided hystological diagnosis in 41 cases. In 4 cases normal lung tissue was obtained, in one patient the biopsy material contained carbon particles and in other 4 patients biopsies gave a positive diagnosis. In one patient of anterior mediastinal mass the hystological diagnosis on first needle biopsy was neurofibro; repeat biopsy was done and reported as squamous cell carcinoma. The patients were subjected to open biopsy and the histopathology provided the diagnosis of primary germ cell tumour. No complications were encountered in 47 patients and one patient had needle tract implantation of tumour one month after performing needle biopsy.
