1. a benign lung or bronchial lesion, often subpleural, sometimes multiple, which forms hyalinized connective tissue.
2. Synonym(s): dermatofibroma

sclerosing hemangioma

Etymology: Gk, skleros + haima, blood, angeion vessel, oma tumor
a solid cellular tumorlike nodule of the skin or a mass of histiocytes, thought to arise from a hemangioma by the proliferation of endothelial and connective tissue cells.

benign fibrous histiocytoma

A benign tumour composed of primitive mesenchymal cells (macrophages or histiocytes) seen in the skin and soft tissues of the legs of young to middle-aged patients, more commonly women, usually in relation to skeletal muscle.

We studied napsin A expression in pulmonary sclerosing hemangiomas to further characterize a possible cell of origin for this tumor.
In our study, napsin A staining was seen in the surface cells of all sclerosing hemangiomas, supporting previous conclusions that that surface cells originate from respiratory epithelium, presumably type II pneumocytes.
This can be further supported by previous studies showing strong staining for surfactant proteins A and B within lamellar structures of surface cells in nearly all sclerosing hemangiomas but not in the round cells.
Identifying 3 of the 4 major architectural patterns within the tumor can be extremely helpful in suggesting sclerosing hemangioma during intraoperative consultation.
