Abstract

The radiological signs observed in 10 cases of angio-immunoblastic adenopathies (AIA) are described. Among the features noted in chest radiography, the mediastinal lesion does not affect the anterior mediastinum; the parenchymatous lesions are observed as reticulonodular opacities, which are more prominent in the lung bases, more or less associated with patches of alveolar opacities or a pleural effusion. Apart from specific parenchymatous lesions, the appearance of an abnormal chest radiography image can arise from an immunological complication or malignant changes in the lesion. Lymphography is of no assistance for the diagnosis of AIA, as the appearances observed are exactly the same as those seen during malignant lymphomas.
