We present an unusual case of a middle aged female without other known co-morbidities presenting clinically with isolated prolonged fever and a radiological evidence of persisting focal lung opacity mimicking neoplasm. She was subsequently diagnosed to have nonspecific interstitial pneumonia on video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery guided lung biopsy. She responded excellently to oral corticosteroids both clinically and radiologically. This case illustrated the need to think beyond infective and neoplastic etiologies in a patient with persistent lung nodule.
