However, reports focusing on CT findings of NLH of the lung have been rare. We report a case of a pulmonary NLH in a 49-year-old woman who showed multiple pulmonary nodules on HRCT and was misdiagnosed preoperatively with adenocarcinoma on the basis of transthoracic cytology. A final diagnosis of NLH was made on postoperative histologic examination. © 2005 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
