Abstract

We report a case of metastatic pulmonary calcification in a patient with chronic renal failure on hemodialysis and secondary hyperparathyroidism. The diagnosis was made by using a probe-based confocal endomicroscopy which showed specific structures in the lung tissue and was proven by a transbronchial lung biopsy. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of the confocal endomicroscopy findings in a patient with metastatic pulmonary calcification.
