Pulmonary interstitial fibrosis, a well-known toxic effect of bleomycin therapy, usually presents radiographically as diffuse reticularity. The authors report an unusual case of biopsy-proven bleomycin toxicity that presented as pulmonary nodules mimicking metastatic tumor. The histologic findings resembled those seen in the diffuse form of toxicity but notably also included foci of bronchiolitis obliterans.
