This report presents a rare case of pulmonary sarcoma with regional anaplastic changes. A 73-year-old Japanese man with a hamartoma-like nodule of the left lung accompanied by interstitial pneumonia was followed up for 30 months. He underwent a surgical resection due to the rapid growth of the lung nodule. A pathological examination revealed a dedifferentiated sarcoma arising from the chondrosarcoma.
