    Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) is a frequent subtype of peripheral T – cell lymphoma (PTCL) characterized by generalized lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, and frequent B - symptoms. Extranodal manifestations are quite common in this subtype of Non Hodgkins Lymphoma which is characterized by frequent skin involvement. However, the extranodal disease should be evaluated thoroughly and a tissue diagnosis must be obtained to confirm lymphomatous involvement when the presentation is not classical. Here we report a case of AITL who presented with lung mass suspected to be due to lymphomatous involvement, but turned out to be a synchronous presentation of an adenocarcinoma of the lung. The possible relation between the two conditions is also elucidated.
