SESSION TITLE: Student/Resident Case Report Poster - Disorders of the Pleura

SESSION TYPE: Student/Resident Case Report Poster

PRESENTED ON: Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

INTRODUCTION: Hypoglycemia can often times be the manifestation of a tumor related paraneoplastic syndrome. Most commonly, the underlying malignancy is an insulinoma or hepatocellular carcinoma. It can also be associated with fibrosarcomas or other rare mesenchymal tumors, such as a solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura (SFTP). SFTP is a rare, slow growing tumor that arises from mesenchymal tissue of the pleura that accounts for approximately 5% of pleural tumors, with a 12-13% malignancy rate. This case will describe the presentation and management of this disease and a rare hypoglycemic syndrome associated with it.
