PTTM is rare and is observed during 0.9% to 3.3% of autopsies of patients with malignant tumors.[2,3] Few cases are diagnosed antemortem.
The presence of cytokeratin-positive carcinomatous emboli and the marked pulmonary arterial and arteriolar intimal fibrocellular proliferation distinguish PTTM from other pathologic entities that could also cause pulmonary hypertension, including paraneoplastic thromboembolism, angiotrophic lymphoma, lymphangitis carcinomatosa, epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, and intravascular bronchioloalveolar tumor of the lung.[4]
Treatment for PTTM has not been extensively studied, as the diagnosis is usually made postmortem.
