    Diffuse pulmonary ossification is a rare entity of characterized by diffuse small bone fragments in lung tissue. Two types are described: ‘nodular’ and ‘dendriform’. Living cases are rarely encountered; most are diagnosed at autopsy. A 29-year-old man had a moderate chest pain ongoing for two weeks was referred to our hospital with bilateral, multifocal, diffuse calcified nodular densities on chest radiography and computed tomography (CT). Use of risperidone and valproic acid due to bipolar personality disorder for three years, working as a car repairer for one year were present in his history. On positron emission tomography (PET-CT) was taken for suspected metastatic disease, increased metabolic activity was detected in multiple nodules with low density. Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) lung biopsy was performed for diagnose. Even though macro.. Read More»
