Abstract:Soft tissue sarcomas of the chest wall, also known as primary malignant mesenchymal tumors, may be mistaken for a malignant mesothelioma because of their histologic similarities. Reports of primary pleural sarcomas are exceedingly uncommon. We present an unusual case of a primary pleural sarcoma with unique clinical and histological features not previously seen in any other subtype of pulmonary sarcoma.
