Lobar consolidation in a chest X-ray is often thought to be due to infection. We present the problem of a 66-year-old female with low grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type who had features of lobar consolidation that persisted for years. The different causes, both infectious and non-infectious, of this kind of presentation are discussed.
