Abstract
We report the case of an 18 year old woman presenting with shortness of breath and pain in the left shoulder. Imaging of the lungs revealed pleural effusion and calcification of the left pleura. An osteosarcoma of the left humerus was the final diagnosis. A review of the literature reveals that calcified pleural metastatic disease in cases of osteosarcoma has been infrequently reported. Other causes of pleural calcification are briefly discussed.
