INTRODUCTION: Current guidelines for lung cancer screening with chest computed tomography (CT) include current or former smokers . There are no similar guidelines for asbestos exposure and malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) . MPM usually presents in the chest radiography as unilateral pleural effusion or pleural thickening. Presentation of MPM as a solitary lung nodule is rare.
