Abstract

Percutaneous fine needle aspiration biopsy was performed on a woman with multiple bilateral lung nodules. The cytology and histology showed a benign spindle cell tumor compatible with benign metastasizing leiomyoma. The patient had a history of hysterectomy 14 years earlier for a cellular leiomyoma with atypia. No significant mitosis was present in either the uterine tumor or lung metastasis.
