Benign Metastasizing Leiomyoma (BML) is a rare disease mostly seen among women in the fertile period with a previous history or coincidental finding of uterine leiomyoma. We report a case of pulmonary BML from the uterus in a 73-year-old woman who underwent myomectomy at the age of 55 years. Two years later she had multiple nodules identified in the lung fields by computed chest tomography. Pathological examination of lung biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of BML with a uterine origin, and she was treated with Tamoxifen. She represented with 2 months history of dyspnea, cough and chest pain. It is the fourth reported case in the Middle East, we discuss the course of the patient and discuss the clinical presentation and management of BML.
