We report a rare case of oncocytic carcinoid of the lung in a 55-year-old man. A computed tomographic scan of the chest and positron emission tomography showed a well-defined nodule measuring 1.2 cm×1.0 cm in the right lower lobe with only slight 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose accumulation. Wedge resection of the nodule using videothoracoscopy was performed to obtain a definitive diagnosis. Since intraoperative histological analysis revealed typical carcinoid, anterior basal segmentectomy of the right lower lobe with hilar and segmental lymph node sampling was done. The final diagnosis was oncocytic carcinoid.
