Abstract: Benign metastasizing leiomyoma (BML) of the lung is a rare manifestation of metastasis from a uterine myoma, in which its benign characteristics are maintained. The majority of cases are asymptomatic. Case 1 responded to the classic treatment of oophorectomy, after which an improvement in symptoms was achieved. In case 2, however, symptoms appeared following oophorectomy and were treated with raloxifene. These cases show the uncertainty that exists with respect to the evolution and treatment of symptomatic BML. Raloxifene is a therapeutic agent that has not been widely studied for this purpose but should be considered for inclusion in the arsenal of therapeutic options available.
