Viruses, immunity and unusual lymphoproliferative disorders of the chest: Integrating imaging with pathogenesis and clinical presentations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Unusual lymphoproliferative diseases result from the stimulation of intrathoracic lymphoid tissue by viruses and immune dysfunction, ranging from benign hyperplasia to malignant transformation. We review the clinical, radiological, and histopathological findings of unusual lymphoproliferative disorders, which have been linked to viruses or immune dysfunction, focusing on thoracic manifestations. Understanding these advances in science enhances the radiologist's skills in integrating the imaging findings to the clinical scenario to suggest the correct diagnosis.
