Abstract Inflammatory pseudotumor is a non-neoplastic process characterized by irregular growth of inflammatory cells. This type of tumor can arise in any part of the body; most are confined to a single site and are benign. We present the case of a 51-year-old man in whom a solitary pulmonary nodule was detected as an incidental finding. Right pulmonary lobectomy was performed and histopathological analysis led to a diagnosis of inflammatory pseudotumor. The patient subsequently developed tumors in the contralateral lung and cervix, the latter being highly aggressive. We found no reports of this association in the literature, prompting the present case report.
