A 67-year-old woman was referred to our department for further evaluation of her abnormal, chest radiogram. Thorax computed tomography revealed a well-circumscribed, round mass in the middle lobe of the right lung. A thoracotomy was performed and pulmonary sclerosing hemangioma was diagnosed. We herein present a rare tumor of the lung.
