INTRODUCTION. Sarcoidosis is a systemic disease manifestation of chronic noncaseating granulomatous inflammation, with predominantly involving lung >90% of all sarcoidosis patients. 1 Different from the idiopathic sarcoidosis, sarcoid reaction is considered as an immunologic abnormality related to a malignant condition, and can occur in % of Cited by: 9. sarcoidosis. Such histological features are designated as “sarcoid-like” reactions in the context of malignant disease . They are found along the lymph node drainage path, to the stroma of a primary solid tumor and less often to distant lymph nodes, bone marrow, spleen and liver , usually distributed in a paravascular location . I was diagnosed with pulmonary sarcoidosis with mediastinal lymph nodes enlargement and couple of nodules in the lung. I feel tiredness, little chest pain that I was said may relate to pleural involvement, and had an abdominal pain below left ribs. (% of patients) Clinical manifestations Diagnostic workup.

Sarcoidosis is achronic systemic granulomatous disease of unknown etiology. In more than 90% of patients with diagnosed sarcoidosis, mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes are affected. Lymph nodes: Hilar or mediastinal lymph nodes involved in almost all cases, tonsils involved in 25% of cases Nodes are enlarged, may be calcified Liver / spleen: Gross disease in 20%, microscopic involvement in 75% of cases Bone: Xray changes in 20%, usually small bones of hands and feet Skin: Involvement in 30% - 50% with erythema nodosum. Clinically, sarcoidosis is most commonly seen in patients between the ages of 20 and 40 years. African-Americans, particularly females, have the . Sarcoidosis is a disease involving abnormal collections of inflammatory cells that form lumps known as granulomas. The disease usually begins in the lungs, skin, or lymph nodes. Less commonly affected are the eyes, liver, heart, and brain. Any organ, however, can be affected. The signs and symptoms depend on the organ involved. Often, none, or only mild, symptoms are Treatment: Ibuprofen, prednisone, methotrexate.
Evaluation of Mediastinal Lymph Nodes in Sarcoidosis, Sarcoid Reaction, and Malignant Lymph Nodes Using CT and FDG-PET/CT.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the necessity of mediastinal lymph node evaluation (MLE) in clinical N0 GGO-predominant NSCLC. Methods: We conducted a retrospective chart review of patients treated for clinical N0 NSCLC that was found by curative resection to be 3 cm or smaller in by: 9. Original papers Med Ultrason , Vol. 16, no. 3, DOI: /muhh Abstract Aim: Mediastinal lymphadenopathy is a typical feature of pulmonary sarcoidosis and an important parameter for diagno- sis and follow-up. The present feasibility study is the first to elucidate the role of transthoracic mediastinal ultrasonography. A total of lymph nodes were sampled in a study conducted by Ozgul et al.,  including subcarinal and 84 right lower paratracheal lymph nodes with .
