    Abstract

    In contrast to primary lung neoplasms, primary pleural neoplasms are uncommon. Pleural neoplasms may be difficult to diagnose and must be distinguished from metastatic carcinomas and sarcomas involving the pleura, and from benign reactive processes causing pleural thickening. A correct diagnosis is important so that appropriate therapy, although it may be only palliative, can be instituted.
