18 Possible Causes for Lung Biopsy showing Multinucleated Giant Cells

  • Granulomatous Lung Disease

    Biopsy of the right lung showed fibrosis and extensive inflammation with multiple non-necrotizing granulomata, consisting of histiocytes, multinucleated giant cells, and lymphocytes[] 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[]

  • Parainfluenza Virus

    The lung biopsy showed organizing pneumonia associated with several multinucleated respiratory epithelial cells containing rare intracytoplasmic inclusions.[] Examination of the BAL fluid revealed scattered multinucleated giant cells intermixed with inflammatory cells.[] This patient was noted to have scattered reticular-nodular opacities in both lungs on computed tomogram scan and underwent transbronchial biopsy and BAL of the left lower[]

  • Measles Pneumonia

    In China, the measles vaccine is offered for free whereas the pneumococcal vaccine is a for-fee vaccine. This difference has the potential to influence how caregivers evaluate whether a vaccine is important or necessary for their child, but it is unclear if models of health behavior, such as the Health Belief Model,[…][]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    A 62-year-old woman presented to our hospital with an anterior chest wall swelling. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging showed findings consistent with an infectious arthritis of the manubriosternal joint, and CT images also demonstrated multiple centrilobular nodules in both lungs, suggesting an[…][]

  • Berylliosis

    Computed tomography (CT) of the thorax was performed in eight patients with chronic berylliosis. The pulmonary CT features were variable and included pulmonary nodularity, and patterns consistent with upper lobe fibrosis or diffuse interstitial fibrosis. Mediastinal or hilar lymphadenopathy was shown in three cases.[…][]

  • Pulmonary Sarcoidosis

    Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disorder with unknown etiology and is characterized by noncaseating granuloma in involved organs. Sarcoidosis frequency involves the lungs. Common presenting symptoms include cough, dyspnea and chest pain. Massive hemoptysis is a rare presentation in sarcoidosis. There are a few reports[…][]

  • Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis

    Granulomatosis with polyangiitis is a rare systemic inflammatory disorder characterized by vasculitis of the small arteries, the arterioles and the capillaries together with necrotizing granulomatous lesions. This case reports on a young female patient, previously diagnosed with granulomatosis with polyangiitis, who was[…][]

  • Sarcoidosis

    The coexistence of systemic sclerosis (SSc) and sarcoidosis is an extremely rare phenomenon; some studies question its existence. We report the case of a male with a diagnosis of sarcoidosis that was admitted due to abdominal distension and pain. After a thorough investigation, he was diagnosed with severe[…][]

  • Navajo Neurohepatopathy

    Navajo Neurohepatopathy (NNH) is a rare hepatocerebral mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) depletion syndrome (MDS) with nonspecific clinical or pathologic features aside from Navajo ancestry. Because of the rarity of NNH, diagnosis rests on close clinicopathologic correlation and appropriate tissue triage for quantitative[…][]
