Pleura tumors are not common and prognosis or diagnosis is confirmed imaging and clinical management correlation. In malignant tumors are most common than other tumors. A novel strategy of non-invasive imaging modalities is the use of chest radiography and computed tomography (CT). Indeed, research findings are required for using ultrasonography (USG), PET-CT, and Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The invasive technique like organ biopsy is a gold standard but this has its limitations. In this case report, we highlight the known and unknown tumors of pleura delaminated by imaging findings.
