Abstract

A benign metastasizing leiomyoma is a rare condition that affects women with a history of uterine leiomyoma, usually after a myomectomy or hysterectomy. Typical radiographic findings include well-circumscribed solitary or multiple pulmonary nodules ranging from a few millimeters to several centimeters in diameter and scattered among the normal interstitium. We report a case of a benign metastasizing leiomyoma that manifested with multiple cavitary nodules in a 46-year-old woman with no previous history of a myomectomy or hysterectomy.
