Calcification within lung cancer occurs by the following mechanisms: (A) calcified scars or granuloma engulfed by a tumor, (B) dystrophic calcification in the necrotic parts of tumor, and (C) calcium deposition by the secretory function of carcinoma itself (e.g., mucinous adenocarcinoma) as in our case (1, 9).
