Lymphomatoid granulomatosis (LYG), a non-neoplastic lymphorecticular disorder, was diagnosed in a 65-year-old woman. Chest radiographs demonstrated bilateral lower lobe nodular infiltrates. Percutaneous needle biopsy of the lung showed an infiltrate composed of plasma cells, lymphocytes and large histiocytic-like cells. Impairment of cellular immunity was found by in vivo as well as by in vitro tests. The clinical condition of the patient has remained stable for the last eight years without specific treatment.
