Pulmonary blastoma (PB) is a very rare primary lung neoplasm. Morphologically, they mimic fetal lung tissue before 4 months gestation. As monophasic variety is extremely rare, we have reported here a case of monophasic PB in a young adult patient who came with cough and hemoptysis for 4 months. On computed tomography scan of the chest, findings showed left upper lobe mass with few specks of calcification within the lesion. The patient underwent left upper lobectomy. The diagnosis was confirmed through histopathological examination with immunohistochemical evaluation. Because of its extreme rarity, we report this case with special interest to help and improve in faster diagnosis and management of the patients diagnosed with PB in future.
