Inflammatory pseudotumors are histologically benign but locally destructive lesions that are usually found in the lung, although some cases of temporal bone involvement have been reported. To the best of our knowledge, no case of simultaneous involvement of the temporal bone and the lung has been previously reported in the literature. We describe such a case in a 39-year-old man. The temporal bone lesion was removed in its entirety, and the lung lesion was treated with steroid therapy. At the 2-month follow-up, the size of the lung mass on chest x-ray was significantly reduced, and at 1 year, the patient was asymptomatic.
