Pulmonary sclerosing hemangioma with atypical radiologic findings
- 37 Downloads
Sclerosing hemangioma of the lung is an uncommon benign tumour that usually presents as an asymptomatic solitary nodule and affects middle age women. Because there are few findings on radiologic studies that are characteristic of sclerosing hemangioma, it is difficult to diagnose on the basis of imaging and biopsy remains the definitive diagnostic test. We report a case of pulmonary sclerosing hemangioma with extremely unexpected imaging findings and review the literature.
