We report a case of multiple sclerosing hemangiomas arising in a 38-year-old woman. Computed tomography (CT) scans of the chest showed multiple small nodules in all lobes of the right lung. The nodule sizes ranged from a few millimeters to the largest of 3.1 cm, which was located in the right middle lobe. She underwent right middle lobectomy to confirm the histological diagnosis. The resected specimen revealed multiple sclerosing hemangiomas. We followed this patient by annual chest CT scans for 10 years and demonstrated that all residual nodules remained unchanged. This is the first report of stable multiple pulmonary sclerosing hemangiomas observed for such a long period.
