We report a case of a 68-year-old patient with a history of chronic asbestos exposure and a lung tumour, highly suspicious for bronchial carcinoma. The patient underwent left lower lobectomy and histology showed the rare diagnosis of rounded atelectasis. Rounded atelectasis is an important differential diagnosis to bronchial carcinoma.
