Abstract

We report a case of clear cell "sugar" tumour of the lung (CCTL) occurring in a 26-year-old lady. The patient was asymptomatic and the lesion was picked up in the course of a pre-employment medical examination. A well-defined 5 cm nodule in the right lower lobe was detected on routine chest X-Ray. Microscopical examination of the coin lesion showed clear cells containing abundant diastase-sensitive intracytoplasmic glycogen, as demohstrated with periodic acid-Schiff stains. Tumour immunoreactivity for HMB-45 and non-reactivity for cytokeratin support the histological diagnosis. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of CCTL in Malaysia.
