A 54-year-old woman with myoepithelioma, a very rare tumor of the lung, is reported. The patient presented with exertional dyspnea, cough and intermittent pleuritic chest pain. Her chest X-ray revealed a peripheral 2 cm mass in the left lower lung zone. Bronchoscopy was normal. She underwent thoracotomy in which a wedge-resection was performed. Histological examination of the specimen demonstrated myoepithelioma of the lung. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
