Abstract
Intravenous leiomyomatosis (IVL) is rare and it is characterized by intravascular nodular masses of benign smooth muscle that may extend to variable site such as uterus, pelvic veins, inferior vena cava, right sided heart and eventually lung. We experienced an unusual case of IVL originating from the uterus and extending to the lung parenchyma and treated by combined surgery, so we report it with a brief review of the literatures.
Key Words: Intravenous leiomyomatosis (IVL), lung extension
