abstract

  • This study and a review of published cases show that the majority of cystic fibrohistiocytic tumours of the lung probably represent metastases from cellular fibrous histiocytomas. However, rare cases may be either primary in origin or the primary site remains occult; the term cystic fibrohistiocytic tumour remains appropriate for such cases.
