Case Presentation: A 70-year-old woman who had received a diagnosis of pneumonia in the right lower lobe was treated with antibiotics at a general practitioner's clinic 9 months earlier. Her pneumonia had improved, but the cough and lung infiltrates persisted for > 6 months, so the patient was referred to our hospital. She had undergone surgery for breast cancer 30 years earlier but had no other medical history. She was not taking any medications and had no history of smoking, including passive smoking.
