Resumen

Presentamos el caso de un adulto portador de una variz pulmonar, rara entidad de la que en la literatura mundial no se alcanza el centenar; creemos que en ausencia de otra patología es una entidad en general benigna por lo que el interés en su conocimiento radica en la diferenciación de otros procesos con similar expresión radiológica pero distinto manejo clínico. Aprovechamos para realizar un análisis de la literatura.

Summary

A pulmonary varix is a rare finding; there are less than 100 reported cases in the literature. The authors present an adult male with a pulmonary varix without associated anomalies; they believe that in the absence of other pathology, the entity generally remains beningn. Differental diagnosis with other processes with similer radiologic signs is important, because management of the patient is different.

A review of the literature is included.
