A 66-year-old female presented with a short episode of non-cardiac chest pain. Nothing to find on examination, and troponin T was negative. There was a previous history 30 years previously of empirical treatment for TB when at bronchoscopy (at that time) she was found to have smooth round mass in the right upper lobe. A CXR (Image 1) followed by a CT (Images 2a–c) were performed.
