This case involves a middle-aged male patient who underwent a routine chest x-ray that revealed an area of density in his lung. Subsequently, a cat scan was performed, which revealed a concerning lesion that doctors recommended be tested for malignancy. The patient was advised to undergo a biopsy, which did not detect malignancy, however the sample did contain a number of white blood cells. The patient shared that he had recently moved from an area of the country in which a certain kind of lung infection is known to exist, however this was not taken into consideration. Eventually, after some additional testing, the patient underwent a lobectomy as well as the removal of several lymph nodes. It was at this point that the mass was revealed to be an infection rather than a cancerous mass.
