Abstract

A 40 year old female was operated because of pulmonary leiomyomatous hamartoma. Despite repeated surgical resection therapy during the following years she developed recurrent multiple hamartoma. The indication for multiple surgery only included compression of central vessels or rapid growth of the hamartomas. The history of hysterectomy--as in our patient--is common for patients with multiple leiomyomatous pulmonary hamartoma. However, revision of the histological slides revealed no hint of uterine leiomyosarcoma. Therefore, a primary pulmonal (and recurrent) multiple hamartosis seems obvious.
