Abstract

• A 62-year-old woman with multiple neurofibromas of the lung was found to have severe hypoxemia due to right-to-left shunting within the tumors. Pulmonary angiograms demonstrated that the major area of shunting was in a large tumor mass in the right lower lobe. Pathologically the neurofibromas were vascular with hyperplastic small arteries and arterioles and large dilated veins. Multiple pulmonary neurofibromas are rare; and, to our knowledge, never previously reported in association with pulmonary arteriovenous shunting.
