Diagnosis With Brief Discussion

Diagnosis
Benign metastasizing leiomyomatosis of the lung
Radiologic Findings
Figure 1. Chest PA shows multiple nodules and masses in both lungs with left pneumothorax. There was another previous chest PA from outside hospital taken 10 years ago.
Figure 2-4. On chest CT after chest tube insertion in left hemithorax, there are multiple nodules and masses with/without cavity in both lungs.
After VATS biopsy, benign metastasizing leiomyomatosis of the lung was finally diagnosed. The patient had a past history of hysterectomy about 50 years ago for uterine leiomyoma.
Brief Review
Benign metastasizing leiomyomatosis (BML) is a rare disorder and has been described as originating from a uterine smooth muscle tumor of an unknown malignant potential and may actually represent a heterogeneous group of smooth muscle tumor, ranging from leiomyomas to low grade leiomyosarcomas.
BML refers to numerous well-differentiated leiomyomas at sites distant from uterus that are histologically identical to uterine leiomyoma. It is largely accepted that they arise as hematogeneous metastases from benign tumors. BML usually manifests as multiple incidentally detected pulmonary nodules in middle-aged women with a history of hysterectomy for uterine leiomyoma.
The imaging findings are pulmonary nodules, varying from solitary lesions to multiple lesions mimicking pulmonary metastases. The nodules may occasionally show cavitation, rarely pneumothorax, or calcification. Disease progression is indolent, and symptomatic disease is rare. The differential diagnosis is metastases from malignant tumors.
