ABSTRACT

A 53-year-old man was admitted to Ohta Nishinouchi Hospital with multiple pulmonary nodules. He had visited another hospital complaining of chest pain 1 month prior to admission. Computed tomography showed multiple opacities, hilar and mediastinal lymphadenopathy with calcification, and bilateral pleural effusion. Biopsy of a subcutaneous nodule on the abdomen led to an eventual pathological diagnosis of osteosarcoma and the patient died of respiratory failure 37 days after hospitalization. This was an unusual case of osteosarcoma with multiple calcified pulmonary nodules detected by radiology.
