Lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia (LIP) is one of the rare interstitial lung diseases exhibiting a profuse infiltration of lymphoid cells in the interstitium of the lung. It has been classified as one of the rare idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (IIPs) as per the recent American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society classification of IIPs. It is an uncommon entity in itself with the idiopathic variety being prodigiously singular. Diagnosis is accomplished by collaboration of clinicoradiological and histopathological attributes. Corticosteroids form the mainstay of therapy with a protean response to therapy. We hereby report a distinctive case of idiopathic LIP picked up inadvertently during a preoperative evaluation.
