INTRODUCTION: Lung cancer is the most common type of cancer. Adenocarcinoma occupies approximately %50 in all lung cancer. Adenocarcinomas present as peripheral nodules or masses often with pleural involment. They can present radiologically as a single mass or a diffuse, multi-nodular lesion. It is rare for the non-small cell carcinoma (adenocarcinoma) of the lung to present as miliary mottling (1). Miliary tuberculosis, sarcoidosis, silicosis, pneumoconiosis, varicella infection, histoplasmosis, hemosiderosis demonstrate miliary mottling on chest radiography (2,3). Milliary mottling is seen most frequently in adenocarcinoma (4).
