Abstract

Pulmonary sclerosing hemangioma (PSH) is a relatively uncommon benign tumor of the lung, predominantly affecting young and middle‑aged women. In the majority of the patients, PSH is incidentally found on physical examination and typically presents as a solitary nodule with smooth borders, as it is generally asymptomatic or lacks typical symptoms. In the present case, a 23‑year‑old woman was incidentally diagnosed with pulmonary nodules during routine physical examination and reported suffering from intermittent fevers for >2 months. The patient received antituberculosis therapy for 1 year; however, a computed tomography imaging examination revealed that the lesions had progressed. Finally, the patient underwent thoracoscopic lung biopsy followed by histopathological examination and the lesions were diagnosed as multiple sclerosing hemangioma. The aim of the present study was to review the relevant literature in order to improve our understanding of PSH.
