Abstract
The incidental discovery of a solitary pulmonary nodule while performing a CT scan of the chest is a very common clinical problem. The differential diagnosis is large but the main clinical challenge is to exclude or ascertain a neoplasia. The evaluation of preexisting risk factors and the analysis of morphological characteristics of the nodule allow the clinician to solve this challenge in a significant number of cases. When the nature of the lesion remains indeterminate a careful follow-up with volumetric determination is necessary for decision making.
