What causes calcified granulomatous disease?Suggest treatment and prognosis

Hello, Dr. Goyal. I am a 54 year old woman with SLE Lupus. Today I was told I have calcified granulomatous disease in the mediastinum and left hilum; suble ground glass opacity es in the right middle lobe, lingual, and both lower lobes; and areas of geographic hyperlucency predominately in the right lower lobe are consistent with air trapping and small airway disease. Please explain to me if I should be concerned about all of this? What are the causes and treatment as well as prognosis for these issues? Thank you for your assistance.

Hello,

Calcified granulomatous disease is a slowly progressive problem. This can affect your lung functions at a later stage. You need to regularly monitor the progression by serial CT scans.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Praveen Tayal, Orthopaedic Surgeon
