Case Study
Sclerosing hemangioma is relatively rare, the second most common benign pulmonary neoplasm, which usually presents the peripheral location. Central location of this neoplasm is extremely rare with only a few reports. Herein, we would like to report an extremely rare case of central sclerosing hemangioma with descriptions of radiological characteristics. It was initially misdiagnosed as a papillary adenoma by bronchoscopic biopsy and mimicked central lung malignancies such as carcinoid tumors on non-invasive image evaluations. However the patient was finally confirmed with surgery.
