OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to report the coexistence of rounded atelectasis with malignant pleural mesothelioma as revealed by radiography and CT. CONCLUSION. Our five cases show the coexistence of rounded atelectasis and malignant mesothelioma. If rounded atelectasis is associated with a pleural effusion, a pleural mass with or without chest- wall invasion, or thickened pleura not adjacent to the rounded atelectasis, malignant mesothelioma should be strongly considered.
