An asynptomatic 58-year-old male was admitted to the hospital because of an abnormal nodule in the left lung field on screening chest X-ray. Chest computed tomography (CT) showed a tumor shadow mass in the left lower lobe. Open biopsy was performed to diagnose the mass. The cytological diagnosis was low-grade malignant adenocarcinoma, underwent left lower lobectomy. The histological diagnosis was pulmonary adenocarcinoma of the fetal lung type which was one of pulmonary blastoma (PB). Recently, the concept of pulmonary blastoma has changed. It will be useful to investigate the old PB's case reports to classify new concept.
