Abstract

A proved case of histoplasmosis with sclerosing granulomatous mediastinitis complicated by severe bilateral bronchostenosis in a 28-year-old woman is reported. The case demonstrates that this relatively benign disease can lead to grave consequences and that computed tomography is extremely useful in the evaluation of this mediastinal lesion, particularly when plain chest radiography is noncontributory.
