Abstract This report describes a patient with malignant pleural mesothelioma who presented with a right-sided pleural effusion and contralateral parenchymal metastases manifesting as alveolar opacities with air bronchograms. This radiological pattern of metastases has never been described before. The patient died from respiratory failure related to extensive parenchymal metastases, an outcome seldom reported with malignant pleural mesothelioma.
