Pleuropulmonary blastoma is a rare childhood neoplasm accounting for less than one percent of all primary malignant lung tumours of children less than six years of age. Meta - stasis to central nervous system, orbit and iris, bone, contralateral lung and rarely adrenalglands, liver, kidney and pancreas has been described. We present a case of pleuropulmonary blastoma in a 3-year-old child who had a recurrence in less than three months, after surgical resection.
