Magazine: Anales de Medicina Interna
Date: Sep 1, 1998Internal Medicine [SP]
We present an AIDs patient who was admitted to our hospital because of dry cough, pleuritic chest pain, fever and bilateral lung nodules on the chest X-ray. An open lung biopsy was diagnostic for Lymphomatoid Granulomatosis (GL). We review the literature of the clinical manifestations, anatomopathological and pathogenetic features, roentgenographic and laboratory findings, as well as treatment strategies of these patients.
The GL has been described in association with AIDS, although in spite of the high prevalence of AIDS in our days, the association between these two entities is not frequent according to the few references in the literature.
