Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Primary pulmonary meningioma is an uncommon, usually benign, soft tissue tumour which has rarely been reported. We report an additional case of primary pulmonary meningioma occurring in an asymptomatic 56-year-old man whose diagnosis was only established after resection. The features of this lesion together with a review of the previous literature are described.
