Abstract

A benign pulmonary metastasizing leiomyoma is a recognized clinical entity that has been infrequently reported in the medical literature. We report two cases of a benign pulmonary metastasizing leiomyoma. A 35-year-old woman who underwent myomectomy and a cesarean section approximately 6 years earlier visited our hospital for further evaluation of incidentally revealed multiple lung nodules. A diagnostic percutaneuous biopsy was performed. Finally she was diagnosed with a benign metastasizing leiomyoma. The patient then received LH-RH and has been followed up since. The other 44-year-old woman presented after an initial radiology evaluation revealed the presence of multiple, small-sized lung nodules. She underwent a right middle lung wedge resection to confirm the diagnosis. Finally she diagnosed with a benign metastasizing leiomyoma. The multiple lung nodules have been followed up closely.
