A 56 year old man presenting with complaints of pain chest with radiation to the right arm and haemoptysis was found to have a right upper zone mass lesion with rib erosion on the X-ray chest, fine needle aspiration cytology of which revealed squamous cell carcinoma. Subsequently, sputum smear was found to be positive for acid fast bacilli by Ziehl Neelsen stain. Synchronous presence of Pancoast tumour of the lung with active pulmonary tuberculosis in the same lobe is a very rare association. To our knowledge, there has been no previous report of any similar case in literature.
