Abstract
Minimally invasive cryoablation is often considered for lung tumor patients with high surgical risk or inoperable metastatic lung tumors. Cryoablation is a type of thermal percutaneous ablation in which argon and helium gases are delivered via a cryoprobe to induce tissue freezing and necrosis. We report the case of a 23-year-old woman who had suffered from multiple pulmonary endometriosis with frequent intermittent hemoptysis during menstruation for 6 years prior to her visit. She was treated with cryoablation at our hospital, and since her treatment, she has been doing well with no hemoptysis for at least 6 months. Although endometriosis is a benign lung disease, cryoablation is an ideal and effective treatment option for patients with multiple endometriosis.
