Sclerosing Hemangioma of the Lung - Benign Sclerosing Pneumocytoma

Chair and Department of Pathomorphology, Collegium Medicum, Jagiellonian University, Krakow


Three cases of sclerosing hemangioma in the lungs were studied. All developed in women aged 28, 32 and 59 years. They had been discovered on routine chest roentgenograms and then excised. In two cases the tumours were solitary, in one case there were six tumours varying in size. The histology of this rare tumour and its various types as well as the results of immunohistochemical studies have been described, partly indicating its epithelial origin.
