Abstract
A well circumscribed nodular mass discovered on routine chest ray examination, in the left inferior lobe of an otherwise healthy 49-year-old male. Histopathologically the lesion corresponded to a typical so called sclerosing hemangioma. The clinical and histopathological features are described. The sclerosing hemangioma of the lung is a rare benign tumor. Its histogenesis has not been explained yet. Following the electron-microscopic and immunohistochemical researches the opinions have been still unhomogeneous. Therefore, it is concluded that is a tumor of epithelial, endothelial, mesenchymal and even mesothelial origin. This study deals with this tumor, its immunohistochemical analysis points at its epithelial character.
