Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELC), best known to occur in the nasopharynx, can arise in a variety of sites, such as the salivary gland, thymus, lung, stomach, and skin. Primary LELC of the lung is very rare, with only limited information in the literature. We presented a case of a 66-year-old white man with a T2N0M0 lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma of the lung. Immunohistochemical analysis was negative for Epstein-Barr virus. Observation of the nasopharynx and a computerized tomography of the cavum were normal.
