ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Pulmonary Sarcoidosis

History: 36 year old African-American male presents with shortness of breath and a persistent cough.

Findings: Chest radiographs (PA and lateral) reveal bilateral hilar fullness as well as a thin linear opacity at the lower left lateral lung field. Noncontrast CT examination of of the chest demonstrates bilateral hilar adenopathy as well as mediastinal adenopathy. Within the lung parenchyma, a small linear opacity is seen within the left lower lobe consistent with atelectasis versus scarring. Otherwise the pulmonary parenchyma was unremarkable.

Ddx: Considerations for mediastinal adenopathy include: infection (e.g. TB or fungal infection), inflammation (e.g. sarcoidosis), neoplasm (e.g. lymphoma), and idiopathic (e.g. Castleman's Disease).

Dxhow: Subcarinal lymph node biopsy during bronchoscopy.

Exam: n/a

No MeSH data available.
