Primary pulmonary mucinous (colloid) adenocarcinoma is a rare type of lung cancer. Its arising in the cavernomyoplasty area has not been reported before. We here describe a sixty-year-old man with a previous history of multidrug-resistant and surgically-treated tuberculosis who was diagnosed as primary mucinous adenocarcinoma in the cavernomyoplasty site. We discuss the relevant literature on this rare entity.
