A 79-year-old woman underwent surgical resection of a peripheral, solitary, pulmonary lesion that was diagnosed as malignant PEComa. Her clinical history was positive for uterine leiomyosarcoma, excised 20 years before. Re-evaluation of the primary uterine lesion led to the final diagnosis of lung metastasis from uterine PEComa. While long latency between primary tumour and metastasis is a known and characteristic feature of PEComas, a 20-year interval is unprecedented in the literature.

Abstract

A 79-year-old woman underwent surgical resection of a peripheral, solitary, pulmonary lesion that was diagnosed as malignant PEComa. Her clinical history was positive for uterine leiomyosarcoma, excised 20 years before. Re-evaluation of the primary uterine lesion led to the final diagnosis of lung metastasis from uterine PEComa. While long latency between primary tumour and metastasis is a known and characteristic feature of PEComas, a 20-year interval is unprecedented in the literature.
