In a 34-years-old patient complaining about persistent dry cough, multiple bilateral pulmonary nodules were observed. The extremely good condition of the patient and the history of resection four years before of an uterine myoma suggested a pulmonary leiomyomatosis. The hystological study after a pulmonary segmentomy confirmed this diagnostic suspicion. The presence of benign pulmonary metastasis in an uterine leiomyoma is a very rare complication. We review the literature therapeutic aspects of this interesting entity.
