This report describes an unusual case of primary carcinoma of the pleura in a patient occupationally exposed to asbestos. Clinical and radiological findings strongly supported a diagnosis of malignant mesothelioma but incisional biopsy and definitive surgical excision showed the uncommon finding of a primitive squamous-cell carcinoma of the pleura.
