Diagnosis of Bronchitis Obliterans with Organizing Pneumonia (BOOP), has been carried out thus far by open lung biopsy, or by transbronchial biopsy. We report a patient who presented with fever, cough and dyspnea. A transthoracic CT-guided biopsy of a peripheral lesion resulted in the diagnosis of BOOP. The histological findings were also confirmed by a transbronchial biopsy. It is suggested that transthoracic CT-guided biopsy should be considered for the evaluation of peripheral lung lesion compatible with BOOP.
