Abstract

Rheumatoid nodules are a rare manifestation of lung disease associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Their emergence and evolution in the course of the disease is variable. The diagnosis of pulmonary rheumatoid nodules may be suggested if they have a typical appearance in an appropriate clinical context, but an accurate diagnosis cannot be made based only on imaging tests. It is recommended to follow nodules and may be necessary to histologically differentiate them from tumors.

Keywords:

Resumen

Los nódulos reumatoides son una manifestación rara de las enfermedades pulmonares relacionadas con la artritis reumatoide. Su aparición y evolución en el curso de la artropatía es variable. El diagnóstico de nódulo reumatoide pulmonar se puede sugerir si tienen una apariencia típica y en un contexto clínico adecuado, pero no se puede hacer un diagnóstico de certeza basándonos solo en las pruebas de imagen. Se recomienda el control de los nódulos y puede ser necesario el estudio histológico para diferenciarlos de lesiones tumorales.
