Abstract

Suture granuloma is a benign tumor defined by an inflammatory reaction and the formation of granuloma, which is caused by the reaction of a foreign body in regards to suture material after surgery. Recently, it has been reported as one of the rare complications following surgery, mainly in regards to non-absorbable sutures. The authors hereby report a case along with CT findings and literature review for suture granuloma in the chest wall after lung lobectomy for lung cancer in a 65-year-old woman.
