Abstract:

Pulmonary Mucinous Cystadenoma (PMCA) is an extremely rare benign tumor of the lungs. We reported a 58-year-old woman with incidental discovery of multiple nodules in both lungs on routine chest CT. Based on pathological and immunohistochemical findings, the final diagnosis was PMCA. Thoracic and superior abdomen Computed Tomography (CT) scan with contrast discovered multiple nodules in both lungs, with the largest nodule located in the lateral basal segment of the right lower lobe, adjacent to the pleura, measuring approximately 17 mm × 15 mm. About 3 months after the operation, the patient is in good condition with no recurrence or metastasis and is undergoing long-term follow-up.
