Pulmonary sclerosing hemangioma is a relatively rare neoplasm of the lung. Although there have been five previous case reports that address the 18-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDGPET) findings in a sclerosing hemangioma of the lung, no report has demonstrated an interval change in the FDGPET findings. This report describes a case of pulmonary sclerosing hemangioma which presented with an increase of uptake of FDGPET after about one years' follow-up.
