ABSTRACT: We report a case of pulmonary solitary capillary hemangioma of 59-year-old woman who visited our hospital for an abnormal chest shadow. She had no symptoms, but a computed tomography (CT) revealed a small irregular nodule at the periphery of right S9. Early lung cancer was suspected. Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) was performed for the difinitive diagnosis and treatment in January, 2008. Macroscopically, the nodule showed ill defined margin and irregular in shape. Partial resection of the lung was performed and the histopathological diagnosis was solitary capillary hemangioma. Postoperative course was uneventful and there is no signs of recurrence.
