Accidental kerosene ingestion is uncommon in adults. We report the rare case of accidental ingestion of kerosene by a previously healthy 20-year-old woman resulting in left lower lobe pneumonitis with minimal pleural effusion. Pulmonary parenchymal lesions were seen only through computed tomography of the chest. Clinical recovery occurred quickly with supportive treatment but resolution of parenchymal lesions was evident on computed tomography of the chest at six months follow-up.
