15 Possible Causes for Lung Biopsy showing Multinucleated Giant Cells

  • Sarcoidosis

    However, immunohistochemical staining of cell surface markers revealed a multinucleated giant macrophage surrounded by T-cells, suggesting granulomatous interstitial nephritis[] Kidney biopsy showed non-specific interstitial nephritis and nephrosclerosis.[] A 61-year-old man was diagnosed with sarcoidosis involving the lungs, eyes, parotid gland and extrathoracic lymph nodes complicated by chronic kidney injury and hypercalcemia[]

  • Granulomatous Lung Disease

    The biopsy showed a nodular mass with noncaseating granulomatous inflammation, including multinucleated giant cells, histiocytes, and acute and chronic inflammatory cell infiltrates[] Figure 2 A transbronchial lung-biopsy section of the right lower lobe obtained during the first evaluation shows a noncaseating granuloma composed of multinucleated giant[] With a negative evaluation up to this point, the patient received a wedge lung biopsy.[]

  • Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis

    Abstract Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis also known as Churgg-Strauss syndrome is a systemic multi system vasculitis. Neurological involvement is mostly in the form of peripheral nervous system disease. Central nervous system involvement is relatively uncommon with most cases being secondary to ischaemic[…][]

  • Measles Pneumonia

    Abstract Measles occurred in 3,220 Air Force recruits between January 1976 and July 1979 and was complicated by pneumonia in 106 cases (3.3 percent). Although no deaths occurred, the illness was characterized as clinically severe with high fever and prolonged hospitalization (mean, 14.5 days). Bacterial[…][]

  • Maple Bark Strippers' Lung

    Interstitial Lung Diseases Interstitial lung disease is the name for a large group of diseases that inflame or scar the lungs. The inflammation and scarring make it hard to get enough oxygen. The scarring is called pulmonary fibrosis. Breathing in dust or other particles in the air is responsible for some types of[…][]

  • Navajo Neurohepatopathy

    Abstract Navajo neurohepatopathy (NNH) is an autosomal recessive disease that is prevalent among Navajo children in the southwestern United States. The major clinical features are hepatopathy, peripheral neuropathy, corneal anesthesia and scarring, acral mutilation, cerebral leukoencephalopathy, failure to thrive,[…][]

  • Churg-Strauss Syndrome

    Lung pathology showed infiltration with eosinophilic and limited number of multinucleated giant cells.[] He eventually underwent bronchoscopy and transbronchial lung biopsy (TBLB) of the right lower lobe and of mucosa of trachea and bronchi.[]
