Abstract

We report the case of a 48-year-old woman with multiple benign metastasizing leiomyomas in both lungs and a single retroperitoneal leiomyoma. The patient underwent surgical resection of the lesion 15 after total hysterectomy for uterine myomas. Immunohitochemical studies performed on the retroperitoneal and pulmonary neoplasms showed them to be of mesenchymal derivation with smooth muscle differentation; the samples were negative for HMB-45. Some histogenetic hypotheses for the multiple leiomyomas are presented.
