Malignant histiocytosis beginning by a unique pulmonary location is most unusual. The case reported here has seemed worthy because of its strange clinical aspect, the unexpected diagnosis, and because of the way it answered completely and rapidly to the following chemotherapy: Adriamycin 50 mg/m2, Cyclophosphamide 750 mg/m2, Vincristine 2 mg one day every three weeks associated to Prednisone 100 mg/m2 the five first days. A study of literature has allowed us to review all pleuro-pulmonary location initiating malignant histiocytosis and to stress out the errors of diagnosis that can outcome in this case.
