Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) are rare malignancies characterized by insidious onset and mostly present with metastasis at the diagnosis. Lung metastasis manifesting diffuse ground-glass opacity is a very rare pattern that is difficult to distinguish from nonmalignant pulmonary diseases. Recognition of this atypical metastases pattern and avoidance of this potential pitfall are crucial. We report a unique case of the Metastatic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Mimicking Interstitial Lung Disease diagnosed by transbronchial lung biopsie. Keywords: Neuroendocrine Tumor, Metastasis, Groundglass opacity, interstitial lung disease.
