This present case report is a very rare solitary Pulmonary Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma (PEH). Generally, bilateral multiple small tumors are the most common feature of PEH. Therefore, radical surgical resection is not indication of therapy in most cases. The present case had a solitary lesion and the tumor had direct invasion to another lobe, left upper lobectomy and S6 partial resection with systematic lymph nodes dissection was performed. The patient remains asymptomatic about 1 year after surgical therapy without recurrence and metastasis.
