Mature teratome lung in pediatric. Case report

The teratoma is called a tumor formed by cells of the three germinal lines: endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm in different maturation state. It is called mature when it is well differentiated and is predominantly ectodermal, with solid and cystic areas. Lung origin teratoma is extremely rare and the a...

Reporte de un caso Bastidas Cuellar, María Luisa Cruz-Rengifo, Luz Marina Argueta Ruano, Miriam Elizabeth Niños, Tumor de células germinales, Pulmón, Teratoma. The teratoma is called a tumor formed by cells of the three germinal lines: endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm in different maturation state. It is called mature when it is well differentiated and is predominantly ectodermal, with solid and cystic areas. Lung origin teratoma is extremely rare and the age of presentation described in the literature is in women aged 20-40 years, which makes the case presented below more interesting. These types of tumors can generate symptoms such as those present in the mediastinal teratoma, described as cough, chest pain or present with hemoptysis and / or infectious diseases. However, in some cases, the diagnosis is incidental, when performing chest X-rays, Difficult diagnosis. Mature teratomas do not produce tumor markers; therefore they are human chorionic gonadotropin beta and alpha fetoprotein negative and are not chemosensitive. Therefore, the treatment is surgical, which achieves cure rates above 95%. This paper aims to describe a clinical case of mature teratoma lung, because it is very rare in the world and even more so in the pediatric population, which gives it clinical significance. El teratoma, se denomina a un tumor conformado por células de las tres líneas germinales: endodermo, mesodermo y ectodermo en diferente estado de maduración. Se denomina maduro cuando se encuentra bien diferenciado y es de predominio ectodérmico, con áreas sólidas y quísticas. El teratoma de origen pulmonar es extremadamente raro y la edad de presentación que está descrito en la literatura es en mujeres de 20-40 años, lo cual hace de más interés el caso presentado a continuación. Este tipo de tumores puede generar síntomas como algunos que se presentan en el teratoma mediastinal, descritos como tos, dolor torácico o presentarse con hemoptisis y/o cuadros infecciosos, sin embargo, en algunos casos el diagnóstico es incidental, al realizar radiografía de tórax, haciendo difícil el diagnóstico preciso. Los teratomas Maduros, no producen marcadores tumorales, por tanto, son Beta gonadotropina coriónica humana y Alfa fetoproteína negativos y no son quimiosensibles. Por lo tanto, el tratamiento es quirúrgico, con lo cual se logra tasas de curación superiores a 95%. En este trabajo se pretende describir un caso clínico sobre teratoma pulmonar maduro, ya que es de muy rara presentación a nivel mundial y más aún en población pediátrica, lo cual le da significancia clínica. 2018-12-23 http://purl.org/coar/resource_type/c_6501 http://purl.org/coar/version/c_970fb48d4fbd8a85 https://revistas.unilibre.edu.co/index.php/rcslibre/article/view/4976 10.18041/1900-7841/rcslibre.2018v13n2.4976 spa Revistas - Ciencias de la Salud Derechos de autor 2019 Revista Colombiana Salud Libre http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.5/co/ Atribución-NoComercial-SinDerivadas 2.5 Colombia Universidad Libre Revista Colombiana Salud Libre; Vol. 13 Núm. 2 (2018) 2539-3340 1900-7841
