Description Lung cancer is the third most common malignant process in both women and men. Lung adenocarcinoma with lepidic growth is a variant that is characterized by its proliferative growth along intact alveolar walls. More women and non-smokers tend to be affected. Early diagnosis reveals a tumor process in the non-invasive or mini-invasive stage, and the prognosis for fiveyear survival is around 100%. The imaging method of choice is CT, where a typical image of carcinoma with lepid growth is the subsolid nodule. Theoretical information concerning this unusual diagnosis is supplemented in the article by a clear case report of a female patient with colorectal cancer and a subsolid nodulus of the left upper pulmonary lobe, in which histological examination confirmed the diagnosis of lung adenocarcinoma with lepidic growth.
