Objective: Interstitial lung diseases (ILD) are a group of pathologies of undetermined frequency that require a broad differential diagnosis and continue to pose a challenge for clinicians.

Observations: We present a clinical case of a 17-year-old male with acute interstitial pneumonitis, lung aspergillosis and foreign body lung granulomatosis after carbon monoxide (CO) intoxication. As far as we know, no similar cases have been reported in the literature.

Conclusions: ILD require a broad differential diagnosis, which is of great importance to prognosis.
