Abstract

We present a case of pulmonary metastasis from pancreatic cancer with biphasic radiological patterns: demarcated nodules, irregularly shaped opacities showing the so-called 'air-space pattern', and both typical and atypical radiological findings. The histology of the demarcated nodules was poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma identical to the pancreatic tumor, while that of the irregularly shaped opacities was well-differentiated adenocarcinoma showing a lepidic growth pattern. Pulmonary metastasis from pancreatic cancer may contain components of various differentiations showing different radiological findings.
