Calcifying fibrous pseudotumors (CFPT) of the lung are very rare, benign lesions of the lung

Pathology

They are composed of hyalinised collagen with psammomatous-dystrophic calcification and a typical pattern of lymphocytic inflammation. 

CFPTs usually occur within soft tissues but have been described in the chest wall, pleura and rarely in the lung.
