Abstract

Multifocal Micronodular Pneumocyte Hyperplasia (MMPH) is a rare and histologically, distinctive pulmonary manifestation of tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) characterized by numerous and extensive proliferative lesions of type II pneumocytes similar to atypical adenomatous hyperplasia (AAH) or non-mucinous adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS). We reported MMPH in a 38-year-old Chinese man with TSC masquerading for 16 months as miliary tuberculosis and discussed the differential diagnosis.
