The hepatoid adenocarcinoma is an uncommon tumor and even more uncommon whenit is located in the pulmonary system. This neoplasm is highly related to the synthesis of alpha-fetoprotein. We present a case of a 60 year old male patient who presented uncontrolled chronic pain on his left shoulderand left chest. After few studies, in an antero-posterior X ray of the shoulder, a pulmonary mass was found. The mass was then diagnosed with the corresponding studiesas a pulmonary hepatoid adenocarcinoma. In this report we mention the characteristics of this pathology in different organs and systems, mainly in the respiratory system.
