Round pneumonia or coin pneumonia is a rare variant in adults, although it is very common in the pediatric age group patients. It can mimic as a pulmonary mass on imaging, which can lead to broad differential diagnosis or misguidance toward the conditions like bronchogenic carcinoma or other benign conditions which can lead to unnecessary diagnostic work up like computerized tomography scan and even a biopsy. We report a case of 45-year-old female with this rare presentation of pneumonia.
