Primary lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma of the lung is a rare tumour. We report a patient with a solitary pulmonary nodule, unchanged on follow-up CT scans of the thorax over two years, but subsequently confirmed on histology as a lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma of the lung. The clinical and radiological features of this rare tumour are also discussed. (J HK Coll Radiol 2002;5:47-49)
