Bronchopulmonary foregut malformations presenting as mass lesions in children: spectrum of imaging findings.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Bronchopulmonary foregut malformations are a heterogeneous but interrelated group of abnormalities that may contain more than one histologic feature. Familiarity with the presentation and imaging features of bronchopulmonary foregut malformations presenting as a congenital mass or mass-like lesion is important. Moreover, imaging plays a central role in the evaluation of these lesions since, when symptomatic, clinical features are usually nonspecific. With imaging, the presence of and features of the lesion can be determined, facilitating appropriate management to prevent the potential complications including infection, respiratory compromise and, very rarely, malignancy.
