We describe a patient in whom multiple cavitary lung nodules developed without infectious symptoms after treatment with bleomycin, cisplatin and vinblastine combination chemotherapy for metastatic testis cancer. Open lung biopsy demonstrated extensive granuloma formation without evidence of malignancy or infection. This report extends the spectrum of bleomycin pulmonary toxicity to include cavitary pulmonary nodules associated with granuloma formation.
