A 60-year-old male heavy smoker surprisingly presented with a squamous cell carcinoma in the right upper lobe at bronchoscopy. Combined PET-CT classified the lung cancer as T1aN0M0. However, the endoscopic classification was T2a, which radically reversed the treatment schedule. Conclusions: 1) A careful bronchoscopy is important even in cases where lung cancer is not expected. 2) Accurate endobronchial classification can be crucial. 3) There is need for training requirements to obtain a satisfactory level of competence in bronchoscopy.
