Electronic cigarettes use or vaping is popular but has not been proven to be an innocuous substitute for traditional smoking. Several patterns of vaping-associated lung injuries have been reported. We report a case of a 43-year-old female patient, who presented with productive cough and an organizing pneumonia pattern on computed tomography (CT) scan. Recognizing the various CT scan patterns of vaping-associated lung injury is important to make a diagnosis because the cessation of vaping is an important step in the treatment.
