CARDEMIL H, Gonzalo et al. Sclerosing hemangioma presenting as a solitary lung nodule: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2004, vol.132, n.7, pp. 853-856. ISSN 0034-9887. doi: 10.4067/S0034-98872004000700010.
Lung sclerosing hemangioma is an uncommon tumor that presents as a solitary asymptomatic nodule and that affects middle age women. It derives from type II pneumocytes. We report a 52 years old female with a solitary lung nodule detected in a chest X ray requested for the diagnosis of an acute respiratory disease. The nodule was excised by video thoracoscopy and the frozen section biopsy was informed as a non small cell undifferentiated carcinoma. Therefore an inferior right lobectomy with lymph node resection was performed. The definitive biopsy was informed as a lung sclerosing hemangioma (Rev Méd Chile 2004; 132: 853-6)
