Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma (BAC) is a rare subtype of adenocarcinoma of lung with distinct features and distinctive characteristics. We present a case series of four patients of BAC who underwent evaluation for nonresolving pneumonia. All the patients were nonsmokers and ranged in age from 25 to 78 years. BAC was suspected because of characteristic clinicoradiological features, and the analysis of fine-needle aspiration biopsy specimen confirmed the diagnosis. Clinicians should be aware of this presentation of BAC, which would lead to early detection and improved outcome.
