Extract

A 63-year-old woman seeks a second opinion regarding a diagnosis of pulmonary sarcoidosis. Chest radiograph and CT revealed two left-upper-lobe spiculated lung masses (1.9 × 1.6 cm and 2.1 × 1.9 cm) and hilar/mediastinal adenopathy (Fig 1 ). No prior imaging was available for comparison. At an outside hospital, results of CT-guided percutaneous needle biopsy of the lung nodules were negative for Gomori methenamine silver stain, mycobacterial, and fungal organisms; however, it showed small nonnecrotizing granulomas (Fig 2 ).
