179 Possible Causes for Granulomatous Tissue, Mediastinal Mass, Pulmonary Tuberculosis

  • Silicosis

    The nerve was dissected and released from scar tissues.[] We report the case of silicosis in a 50-year-old woman that presented with pulmonary fibrosis and later developed pulmonary tuberculosis.[] Cryptococcosis was also found in masses identified in the mediastinal lymph nodes.[]

  • Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis

    Granulomatous inflammatory tissue around the skull base resulted in cavernous sinus syndrome, facial nerve palsy, palsies of cranial nerves IX-XII (Collet-Sicard syndrome)[] Wegener's granulomatosis disease mimicking pulmonary tuberculosis.[] A biopsy specimen of the subglottic tissue was positive for necrotizing granulomatous vasculitis.[]

  • Silicotuberculosis

    It is concluded that this is an effective means of treatment for pulmonary tuberculosis in patients with silicosis as well as in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis only,[] In the mediastinal windows (B, C) (C: 50, W: 350), conglomerate mass is seen to contain high-attenuation material (curved arrow); it is also seen in mediastinal lymph nodes[] We describe a cascade of complications-active pulmonary tuberculosis despite recent isoniazid prophylactic therapy, non-tuberculous mycobacterial disease, chronic airways[]

  • Esophageal Tuberculosis

    The final diagnosis was laryngo-tracheo-esophagic tuberculosis secondary to pulmonary tuberculosis with lymph node involvement.[] One patient had a fistula draining into a mediastinal mass. Both patients responded promptly to treatment with tuberculostatics. Surgery was not required.[] These features included heterogeneous or homogeneous hypoechoic masses in the esophageal wall, incrassation, interruption of esophageal adventitia, and mediastinal lymphadenitis[]

  • Sarcoidosis

    A search for mycobacterial DNA in granulomatous tissues from patients with sarcoidosis using the polymerase chain reaction. Am Rev Respir Dis 1992 ; 145 : 1142 –1148.[] In particular, suspected sarcoidosis must be differentiated from pulmonary tuberculosis, a lung tumor or lymphoma.[] On computed tomography, the mass resembled a lotus torus. A transbronchial lung biopsy and mediastinal lymph node biopsy led to the diagnosis of sarcoidosis.[]

  • Disseminated Tuberculosis

    Sections of lung tissue showed granulomatous inflammation composed of epitheloid cells a few lymphocytes and caseous necrosis.[] Chest radiogram revealed bilateral pulmonary tuberculosis.[] mass, progressive lymphadenopathy, genitourinary, and musculoskeletal tuberculosis.[]

  • Pleural Tuberculosis

    This granulomatous involvement of the tracheobronchial tree can ulcerate, which on healing produces fibrotic bronchostenosis and post-obstructive bronchiectasis.[] […] pleurisy who had high ADA values had a higher probability of manifesting pulmonary tuberculosis.[] mediastinal lymphadenopathy.[]

  • Lymph Node Tuberculosis

    When AFB was not demonstrable, but the tissue reaction pattern showed granulomatous inflammation with necrosis, the case was also included in this study.[] Abstract The management of 1,337 cases of pulmonary tuberculosis and 422 cases of lymph node tuberculosis reported to the 1998 national notification survey was compared with[] mass consistent with enlarged anterior mediastinal lymph nodes.[]

  • Pulmonary Histoplasmosis

    Spread to other tissues results in the development of granulomatous enteritis, colitis, osteomyelitis and endophthalmitis.[] Abstract We have reviewed the accumulated evidence for the explanation of the apical localization of pulmonary tuberculosis, chronic pulmonary histoplasmosis, and massive[] mass were nondiagnostic.[]

  • Spinal Tuberculosis

    However, epidural granulomatous tissue or tuberculoma of the spinal cord may not be detected by these tools [ 8 ].[] We hypothesized that a genetic difference may exist between the development of STB and pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB).[] We describe a case of vertebral TB which presented with a posterior mediastinal mass suggesting a malignancy resulting in a delay in diagnosis.[]
