Abstract

The paper presents a case of right lung carcinoma diagnosed 7 years after tuberculoma excision performed in the same lung. The diagnosis was based on observing the increase of a non suspicious mass. It is unclear whether the cancer developed from metaplasia, or was a primary tumor, mistaken for a tuberculoma. Patient underwent a successful excision of the neoplastic mass, with 4-year recurrence free survival.
