INTRODUCTION: Sclerosing haemangioma is a benign tumour, also known under the term "pneumocytoma". It is mostly notified in older females and is usually solitary. According to the histological appearance, sclerosing haemangioma could be: papillary, sclerotic, solid and haemorrhagic. CASE OUTLINE: A 68-year-old female patient was radiologically diagnosed with coin lesion in the lower right lobe. Lower right lobectomy was performed after clinical investigations. In pulmonary parenchyma, there was found a well circumscribed node of up to 35 mm in maximal diameter. The tumour was histologically established as sclerosing haemangioma, containing two types of cells with the same immunophenotype. A multiple type of tumour was excluded by postoperative radiological examinations.Two years after surgery, the patient is without disease recurrence. CONCLUSION: Sclerosing haemangioma should be considered in patients with radiologically diagnosed "coin-like" lesions of a solid as well as multiple type.
