Abstract

We present two cases of intrapulmonary lymph node. The patients were a 44-year-old woman and a 71-year-old man each with a small peripheral nodule in the lung. On computed tomography (CT) scans, both nodules were spiculated. Since histological diagnosis could not be obtained by bronchoscopic examination or CT-guided needle biopsy, they underwent video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. Histological examination of the resected material revealed that both nodules were composed of lymph node. Intrapulmonary lymph node has until recently been assigned no clinical significance; however, differential diagnosis of this lesion from lung cancers and other metastatic tumors is now clinically important.
