A 72-year-old non-smoker Caucasian woman was admitted in our Thoracic Surgery Unit in July 2013 due to abnormal findings seen in chest computed tomography (CT) scan. She worked as a farmer and has a domestic animal (cat). Regarding her past medical history, in 2006 the patient underwent sigmoidectomy for colic adenocarcinoma (pT3N0), followed by radiotherapy. Due to the presence of a PET positive pulmonary nodule discovered in 2007 the patient was treated with six cycles of chemotherapy followed by a left pulmonary lobectomy (metastasis of colic adenocarcinoma at histology). Follow-up screening was negative till March 2013 when chest CT scan revealed a single 1 cm pulmonary nodule in the posterior costodiaphragmatic recess of the right inferior lobe (PET negative), with no pathological mediastinal lymph nodes. Tumoral markers were negative and colonoscopy showed no signs of local recurrence. Pre-operative laboratory tests and all pulmonary functional tests were normal. The patient underwent a wedge resection of the pulmonary nodule through a right video-assisted thoracoscopic approach. Three days after surgery she was discharged from hospital without any complication.
