Abstract

A 72-year-old patient with a rare disease-exogenous lipoid pneumonia (ELP) was described. One year ago he underwent laryngectomy because of larynx carcinoma and now he was admitted to hospital because of suspition of cancer progression in the lungs. Chest HRCT and microscopic picture of BALF suggested diagnose of lipoid pneumonia. His history supported it because he used oil drops to hist tracheostomy outline.
