Özet

We report the case of a pulmonary sclerosing haemangioma radiologically presenting as a cystic lesion. The patient was found to have specific anti-echinococcus immunoglobulin E and therefore the preoperative diagnosis was that of pulmonary hydatid cyst. A surgical resection was performed. Although rarely encountered, pulmonary sclerosing haemangioma may show radiological and serological similarities to a pulmonary hydatid cyst. Both entities necessitate complete removal of the lesion without parenchymal resection.
