We report a case of metastatic adenocarcinoma pleura in a non-smoking 29-year-old man. X-ray Chest revealed Left sided repeated pleural effusion despite repeated tapping. CT revealed a moderate Left sided pleural effusion. A VATS biopsy of the Left Pleural Nodules and Left lung nodules revealed a metastatic adenocarcinoma. He was a non-smoker and molecular markers revealed an EGFR Mutation and were started on oral TKI. He had near complete resolution after 6 months except for mild thickening of the pleura at the base.
