Many disorders and abnormalities are accompanied by cavitary lesoin of the lung and one of the most common causes of cavitary lung disease are primary and metastatic lung neoplasms, but cavitary formation of primary lung cancer is not frequent and cavitary or cystic pulmonary metastases of this is also rare. We report a case of cavitary pulmonry metastases of primary lung cancer proven by bronchoscopic biopsy and chest CT. The patients was 60 year-old heavy smoker who had no known underlying lung diseases 7 years ago and complained chronic cough. The chest CT showed primary lung cancer in right low lobe with multiple cavitary or cystic metastases in both lungs and multiple lymphatic metastases.
