Abstract

We have reported three cases of isolated nodular pulmonary amyloidosis, a rare condition whose roentgenographic presentation frequently mimics tumor metastatic to the lung or primary lung cancer. Computerized tomography is not helpful in diagnosing this condition. In our experience, the specific diagnosis could be made by aspiration needle biopsy, avoiding thoracotomy.
