INTRODUCTION: WD is a rare multi-systemic disorder caused by Thropheryma whipplei, a Gram-positive bacillus. Gastrointestinal manifestations are the most frequent, but many other organs may be involved. We report a case of WD presenting with lung nodule in which shortness of breath and wheezing were the only manifestations.
