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.
