This is a brief case report of invasive multicentric mucinous adenocarcinoma presented at a rather young age with bronchorrhea and persistent consolidation that ended up with the patient demise; nevertheless, we demonstrate relevant radiological and pathological features with emphasis on the new classification of bronchioloalveolar carcinoma, a term that should no longer be in use.
