Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Hepatic granulomatosis is not a nosological entity in itself, but an aspecific pathological reaction of the liver against various antigens and toxic or infectious agents. According to most authors and our own experience, one of the most frequent symptoms of this disease is a long lasting fever. Etiology is most often proved as being infectious (tbc, brucellosis, mycosis, mononucleosis, cmv, Q fever, etc.) and sarcoidosis. Other generally verified causes are : hypersensibility against drugs (sulfamidics, antibiotics, antiinflammatories etc.); chronic bowel diseases, like Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis; neoplasms; Hodgkin's disease; berylliosis; biliary cirrhosis. The authors explain the diagnostic and therapeutical methods to employ while suspecting and certifying such a disease.
