Abstract:

Evans tumor, also known as Low-Grade Fibromyxoid Sarcoma (LGFMS) is rare form of sarcoma,
occurring in the deep soft tissues of mostly young adult males. We describe a 36-year old man with
pulmonary LGFMS that originated from possible metastasis of a primary leg lesion. The patient
had initially been misdiagnosed with neurofibroma in their right leg. A right upper lobectomy and
mediastinal dissection were performed to remove the tumor. The tumor was completely resected,
and there has been no evidence of recurrence. LGFMS should be included as a differential for large,
benign-appearing lung masses in young adults, as complete surgical resection can be effective.
