DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5915/19-3-13017

An asymptomatic male presented with multiple pulmonary parenchymal masses on chest roentgenography. CT showed three high attenuation masses. A vascular mass was considered but on angiogram subsequently done was negative. Lymphadenopathy was noted at this point and a biopsy showed a low grade neuroendocrine carcinoma.Thus some solid tumors simulate vascular masses. Vascular masses too may present as solid tumors and an angiogram is mandatory for diagnosis.
