A previously well 20-year-old young lady who presented with nonspecific right-sided chest pain was found to have a rounded shadow on chest X-ray. Investigations to rule out malignancy revealed multiple lung masses. Initial blood tests and percutaneous image guided biopsy were inconclusive. Surgical lung biopsy revealed features suggestive of Bronchocentric Granulomatosis. Her lung shadows spontaneously resolved and there was no evidence of symptomatic or radiological recurrence on follow up for five years. Bronchocentric Granulomatosis is a rare condition particularly in non-asthmatic individuals and should be considered in the lesser-known differential diagnosis of benign lung shadows
