Dr Priyadarshini Behera, Dr Syed Umer Ahmed

Abstract :

 Bronchoalveolar carcinoma presenting as nonresolving pneumonia is not so common. The classical presentation of onchoalveolar carcinoma is asymptomatic (solitary nodule). Here we report a case of onchoalveolar carcinoma presenting as nonresolving pneumonia in a 46 year old male with cough, eathlessness, low grade fever with features of left upper lobe consolidation on chest x–ray. CT guided biopsy revealed onchoalveolar carcinoma.
