Calcified hilar and mediastinal lymph nodes in an AIDS patient with Pneumocystis carinii infection.

Author information

Department of Radiology, SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse 13210.


An unusual radiologic manifestation of Pneumocystis carinii infection (enlarged, calcified hilar and mediastinal lymph nodes) in a patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is described. This atypical manifestation caused significant diagnostic confusion. Recognition that P carinii infection can cause calcification of hilar and mediastinal lymph nodes may prevent this confusion and facilitate diagnosis and treatment.
