The patient was a 54-year-old man with symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who had smoked for many years. A thoracic CT showed bilateral bullae and a tumour measuring 35×25 mm in the right upper lobe (figure 1). Radiological features were consistent with an intraparenchymatous lung tumour. A right upper lobectomy was performed. Gross examination of the surgically excised specimen revealed a nodular lesion measuring 5×5 cm in diameter.
