Abstract

Primary pulmonary leiomyoma of the lung is benign in nature and is one of the rarest tumors of mesodermal origin. Because of the increasing number of routine chest roentgenograms, these lesions are being discovered more frequently. Treatment is by conservative surgical resection and carries a favorable prognosis. We presented a 30-year-old patient with expectoration cough and night sweats who undergone resection due to a mass in left lower lobe and diagnosed primary pulmonary leiomyoma.
