Lung lesions’calcifications include many differential diagnoses and usually indicate a benign course. However, its interpretation is challenging due to many etiologies. Radiological visualization of extensive calcification in bronchogenic carcinoma is not familiar and may cause confusion and misdiagnosis; however, It may be rarely seen and has also been reported. We documented a case of a lung adenocarcinoma with extensive calcification in computed tomography (CT) of chest and diagnosed as mucinous adenocarcinoma of lung by bronchoscopic lung biopsy.

Keywords: Lung adenocarcinoma; Lung cancer with calcification; Calcified adenocarcinoma of lung, lung calcification; pulmonary calcification.
