    Abstract

    A case of mulitple sclerosing haemangiomas of the lung is described from a 40-year-old woman, who presented with haemoptysis. A chest X-ray revealed multiple circumscribed coin lesions in both lungs. A right upper lobectomy was done for diagnosis. The patient has remained well for 2 years after surgery. Multiplicity of tumour masses of pulmonary sclerosing haemangiomas is extremely rare and, although benign, may pose a great diagnostic problem.
