Asymptomatic silicone induced granulomatous disease diagnosed by endobronchial ultrasound with real-time guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA)

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftArtikelForskningpeer review

Abstrakt

Silicone from ruptured breast implants can cause lung symptoms mimicking cancer. The diagnosis may be established by transbronchial lung biopsy or surgery. We report a case of asymptomatic silicone induced granulomatous reaction in the lungs and mediastinal lymph nodes diagnosed with EBUS-TBNA. We conclude that this differential diagnosis should be kept in mind even in an asymptomatic patients and that EBUS-TBNA should be considered.
