Chinese Journal of Lung Cancer, 02/24/2012
Chen J et al. – The rate of Malignant pleural mesothelioma misdiagnosis is high because most of the patients have untypical clinical symptoms. However, CT scan can provide an important basis for the diagnosis of Malignant pleural mesothelioma. The accurate diagnoses were based on pathological examinations and immunohistochemistry. The methods of treatment include chemotherapy, surgical operation, radiotherapy and supportive treatment. However, these treatments are still insufficient and require further studies.
