Nasal-type T-cell/natural killer cell lymphoma is a new distinctive clinicopathologic entity with a characteristic immunophenotypic expression of CD56. Most cases show a predilection for the nasopharyngeal region and are referred to as nasal T/NK-cell lymphoma. Few cases occur in areas other than the nose. To the best of our knowledge, nasal type T/NK cell lymphoma with isolated lung involvement has not been reported. We illustrate here the CT findings of this rare tumor occurring primarily in the lung.
