February Case of the Month

Clinical History: A 59-year-old man with a history of melanoma presented with a 1.6-cm endobronchial mass. The mass was biopsied and diagnosed as metastatic melanoma, and he subsequently underwent mass debulking and systemic therapy with checkpoint blockade therapy. Eight months later, the patient complained of cough and shortness of breath.  A CT chest was notable for a right lower lobe mass (5.6 cm; Figure 1), clinically suspected to represent progressive melanoma. The patient otherwise had no other systemic evidence of progressive metastatic melanoma, therefore the patient underwent resection of the lung mass (Figures 2-6).
