A patient who feared he had cancer was told he had grown a pea plant which had sprouted leaves in his lung.
Ron Sveden, a retired teacher from Brewster, Massachusetts, in the US, had been short of breath for months and was taken to hospital in May.
Doctors found a grainy spot on an X-ray and he prepared himself for a diagnosis of cancer.
The 75-year-old said: "I was told I had a pea seed in my lung that had split and had sprouted. It is probably about a half-an-inch which is a pretty big thing."
His wife Nancy added: "God has such a sense of humour. I mean it could have been just nothing, but it had to be a pea, and it had to be sprouting."
