Figure 2: (a) Thoracoscopic view of the pleura showing small coalescing cheesy nodules. Histopathological examination showing caseating granulomas and langhans giant cells consistent with tuberculosis. (b) Thoracoscopic view of the pleura showing pleural infiltration. Histopathological examination showing tumor cells arranged in glands and tubules with occasional papillary formation consistent with adenocarcinoma lung. (c) Thoracoscopic view of the pleura showing variable sized nodules on the visceral and parietal pleura. Histopathological examination necrosis and neoplastic cells in sheets with eosinophilic cytoplasm and pyknotic nuclei consistent with squamous cell carcinoma. (d) Thoracoscopic view of the pleura showing variable sized large nodules on the visceral and parietal pleura. (d) Histopathological examination infiltration by neoplastic cells round to spindle with scant to moderate cytoplasm, hyperchromatic nuclei suggestive of metastatic carcinoma. It was confirmed to be a malignant neuroendocrine tumour on Immunohistochemistry
