Summary Background Benign metastasizing leiomyoma (BML) is a rare condition described as multiple well-differentiated leiomyomas at sites distant from the uterus. Apart from lungs it has also been reported in lymph nodes, heart, brain, bone, skin, eye and spinal cord. We present a case of pulmonary benign metastasizing leiomyoma in a female patient admitted to our hospital with suspicion of left adnexal tumor. Case Report A 45-year-old woman was referred to our hospital with suspicion of left… Expand
Benign leiomyoma metastasizing to the lung : a case report and a brief review of the literature
The authors have investigated a rare clinical condition consisting of a benign metastatic leiomyoma (BML) spreading in the lung, in a young woman. A 42-year-old woman affected by multiple pulmonaryExpand
Benign metastasizing leiomyoma in triple location: lungs, parametria and appendix
The triple location of BML could possibly be a result of a parallel different metastasizing mechanism, although it is impossible to exclude one mechanism, which may be the cause of the metastases in three locations. Expand
Pulmonary benign metastasising leiomyoma: a single-institution case series
Benign metastasising leiomyoma (BML) is a rare and often asymptomatic presentation of smooth muscle tumour of uterine origin, occurring outside the uterus. We present the first case series ofExpand
Cystic pulmonary benign metastasizing leiomyoma: case report
A 57-year-old female patient referred to thoracic surgery department for a solitary pulmonary nodule with cystic like appearance increased in size 13 years after first detection was diagnosed with benign metastasizing leiomyoma (BML). Expand
Benign metastasizing leiomyoma: A review of current literature in respect to the time and type of previous gynecological surgery
Benign metastasizing leiomyoma pathogenesis is most probably complex in nature and requires further multidirectional research. Expand

Pulmonary benign metastasizing leiomyoma from uterine leiomyoma
The diagnosis of BML is based on the medical history of uterine myomas and histopathologic and immunohistochemical examination of lung nodules and video-assisted thoracoscopic wedge resection is the best way to harvest tissue for diagnosis. Expand
Pulmonary Benign Metastasizing Leiomyoma from the Uterus in a Postmenopausal Woman: Report of a Case
Although this disease is considered to be hormone-dependent, metastasis was found in this elderly postmenopausal woman whose tumor was negative for estrogen receptor. Expand
Benign Pulmonary Metastasizing Leiomyomatosis: Case Report and a Review of the Literature
This case showed the longest period of clinical progression in Korea, and one of a few cases in which curative excision was successfully performed, of benign metastasizing leiomyoma (BML). Expand
Benign Metastatic Leiomyoma Presenting as a Hemothorax
Pulmonary benign metastasizing leiomyoma may result in the formation of cystic structures, destruction of lung parenchyma, and hemothorax and may cause respiratory failure, and surgical resection and hormonal therapy help prevent progression of this disease and provide an avenue for a cure. Expand
Leiomyomas beyond the uterus: unusual locations, rare manifestations.
The most useful modalities for detecting extrauterine leiomyomas are ultrasonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, which usually show low signal intensity similar to that of smooth muscle on T2-weighted images. Expand
Benign metastasizing leiomyoma: clonality, telomere length and clinicopathologic analysis
Analysis of clinical, pathological and immunohistochemical features, clonality, and telomere length of multiple lung and uterine tumors in three patients with benign metastasizing leiomyoma supports the notion that benign metastases is clonally derived from benign-appearing uterineLeiomyomas.
