Mediastinal granuloma.

In a group of 47 patients with mediastinal granulomas, the most common clinical symptoms were cough, chest pain, dysphagia, hemoptysis, and dyspnea. The main laboratory findings were right paratracheal or hilar mass on chest roentgenogram, positive histoplasmin skin test, and caseating granuloma on histopathologic examination. Complications included fibrosing mediastinitis with superior vena cava obstruction, esophageal compression, and major upper airway compression. Treatment was usually surgical resection or evacuation of caseous contents. The prognosis in most patients with mediastinal granulomas appears to be good--long-term survival with minimal or no disability.[1]
