Background: Phosphaturic mesenchymal tumors are rare neoplasms, frequently presenting with osteomalacia. These neoplasms usually grow at a slow rate and are associated with unspecific symptoms. Case: In this study, we present the case of a 70-year-old woman who had been suffering from musculoskeletal pain, hypophosphatemia, and spontaneous fractures. Positron emission tomography with Gallium showed increase uptake in a subpleural lesion. Conclusion: The patient underwent surgical excision of the subpleural lesion with a non-intubated uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery approach.

Abstract

Background: Phosphaturic mesenchymal tumors are rare neoplasms, frequently presenting with osteomalacia. These neoplasms usually grow at a slow rate and are associated with unspecific symptoms. Case: In this study, we present the case of a 70-year-old woman who had been suffering from musculoskeletal pain, hypophosphatemia, and spontaneous fractures. Positron emission tomography with Gallium showed increase uptake in a subpleural lesion. Conclusion: The patient underwent surgical excision of the subpleural lesion with a non-intubated uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery approach.
