    Abstract

    Scattini, C. M. and Orsi, A. (1973).Thorax, 28, 782-787. Multiple bilateral fibromas of the pleura. A patient with multiple bilateral fibromas of the pleura which evolved over 25 years is presented. Tumours were resected in four successive surgical interventions during this period. At the second operation `spontaneous regression' of several small pleural fibromas noted at the first operation four years previously was observed. The differentiation between pleural fibroma and pleural localized mesothelioma is discussed.
