Excavated pulmonary metastasis is rare. We present two cases of excavated pulmonary nodules proved to be metastases from osteosarcoma and gallbladder lymphoma.The first one is a 39-year-old man in whom cholecystectomy made the diagnosis of primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the gallbladder. He presented in chest CT scan excavated nodules that had been biopsied and confirmed the diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. He underwent 8 courses of chemotherapy CHOP 21 with complete remission. The second one is a 21 years old man who presented a right leg osteoblastic osteosarcoma with only excavated pulmonary nodules in extension assessment. He had 3 courses of polychemotherapy API (doxorubicin, platinum, and ifosfamide) with partial response. Unfortunately, he died following a septic shock.
