Metastatic carcinoma is often not considered in the differential diagnosis of multiple, thin-walled cavitary lesions in the lung and yet, in the New England area, such lesions are more apt to be caused by carcinoma than by fungal diseases. Because of the relatively small number of patients reported with pulmonary cavitary metastases, nine cases collected over the past several years at the Boston Veterans Administration Hospital are discussed here. Four patients with cavitary pulmonary lymphoma have been seen at this hospital during the same period but were not included, because it is debatable whether such lesions should be called metastases.
