INTRODUCTION: Benign metastasizing leiomyoma (BML) is a rare condition characterised by the unusual growth of leiomyomatous lung lesions, typically found in premenopausal women with a history of uterine fibroids. Most patients are asymptomatic but some rapidly progress to respiratory failure and death. The pathogenesis for BML includes hormone-sensitive in-situ proliferation of smooth muscle bundles, or the transport of smooth muscle cells from a uterine leiomyoma to distant sites in the lung, particularly after surgical procedures involving manipulation of pre-existing uterine leiomyoma.
