INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary ossification is mature bone in the alveolar or interstitial space seen in non-neoplastic processes such as pulmonary infections and interstitial fibrosis. It is also described in renal, gastrointestinal and soft tissues tumors but is rarely reported in primary lung carcinoma. We describe a case of heterotopic ossification associated with squamous cell carcinoma of the lung which was not evident on initial pleural and parenchymal biopsy.
