Blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome (BRBNS) is a rare condition that consists of multiple venous malformations involving several organ systems, particularly the skin and the gastrointestinal tract, but any part of the body may be affected. Less than 250 cases have been reported in the literature. The authors describe the thoracic, abdominal, and pelvic imaging characteristics at computed tomography (CT) in a 50-year-old man with BRBNS.

    Congenital lung lesions are diagnosed antenatally in the majority of cases. Postnatal management includes chest radiography and CT-scanning, followed by either surgical resection or CT surveillance. Pre-operatively, lesions are often "labelled" as CCAM (and the Stocker classification incorrectly...
