Nodular hemangiomatosis of pleura and peritoneum.
ABSTRACT Multiple, simultaneously occurring hemangiomas in one or more organs are known as hemangiomatosis syndromes in the context of phacomatosis manifesting in childhood. Nevertheless, hemangiomas of the serous membranes are extremely rare and often present as solitary lesions. We report the case of an elderly patient who suffered from diffuse hemangiomatosis of the visceral peritoneum and pleura and deceased due to acute respiratory distress syndrome following persistent and unmanageable pulmonary hemorrhage. We present an unusual case of a disseminated but histologically benign appearing hemangiomatosis of the serous membranes.
