Pulmonary metastasis presenting as a ground glass opacity-li
Most of pulmonary metastases present as well-defined solid and round nodules. Here we report a case of a pulmonary metastasis presenting as a ground glass opacity (GGO)-like lesion with a thin-walled cavity and lymph node metastasis of tongue cancer.

A 22-year-old man was referred to our department for surgical diagnosis and treatment for a GGO-like pulmonary nodule with a thin-walled cavity in the right lower lobe. He had a history of surgical resection for tongue cancer. The size of the GGO-like lesion with a thin-walled cavity in the center gradually increased. A right lower lobectomy and hilar lymphadenectomy were performed. Postoperative pathology revealed the lesion as pulmonary metastasis and hilar lymph node metastasis of tongue cancer.
