Abstract

Amiodarone is an effective agent in the treatment of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias. However, there are numerous side effects associated with this drug, including pulmonary toxicity. This report describes a pulmonary mass that developed in a patient receiving amiodarone and was initially thought to be a lung cancer. Complete resolution occurred after cessation of the drug.
