Hydrocarbon pneumonitis is a type of acute exogenous lipoid pneumonia due to the aspiration of petroleum products. The clinical and radiological features of this condition are non-specific and the diagnosis is usually missed if a careful history is not taken. Herein, we describe a 24-year-old male who was referred to us with a diagnosis of Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) and was later found to have hydrocarbon pneumonitis.
