A 48-year-old man was admitted for evaluation of abnormal shadows on chest radiograph. Chest computed tomography (CT) showed cysts, nodules, and cervical and axillary lymphadenopathies. Elevated serum levels of IgG4 and interleukin (IL)-6 suggested IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) or multicentric Castleman's disease (MCD). Histologic findings of the cervical lymph node and right lung S(6) biopsies revealed numerous IgG4-positive plasma cells. Although CT findings of the lungs were atypical for IgG4-RD, consistent histologic findings, clinical symptoms, and laboratory data made us conclude IgG4-RD...

Background Nivolumab demonstrates promising efficacy for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer and other malignancies. The clinical benefit of nivolumab, however, may be hampered by specific immune-related adverse events (irAEs), and little is known regarding nivolumab-related cholangitis. Methods A computerized search of our clinical database identified 3 metastatic non-small cell lung cancer patients with nivolumab-related cholangitis. All patients were treated with intravenous nivolumab monotherapy (3...

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a recently defined condition characterized by inflammatory tumefactive lesions in various organ systems. IgG4-RD is a clinical and radiological diagnosis of exclusion and requires the presence of specific histopathological criteria for diagnosis. A 50-year-old man presented to an outside hospital with a 3-month history of progressively worsening back pain and symptoms of pleurisy, nasal crusting, and hematochezia. Radiological workup revealed an epidural-paraspinal mass with displacement of the spinal cord, destruction of the T5-6 vertebrae, and extension into the right lung...

We report a case of immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related lung disease presenting as a solitary pulmonary nodule with an irregular margin on computed tomography. The nodule showed a high standardized uptake value on positron emission tomography. A malignant pulmonary tumour could not be excluded. Middle lobectomy was performed. Histological analysis revealed marked lymphoplasmacytic infiltration and storiform fibrosis. Immunostaining indicated the presence of IgG4-positive plasma cells. A definitive diagnosis of IgG4-related disease was confirmed...

We describe an 81-year-old man with immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) presenting with submandibular gland, lymph node, lung, kidney, aortic wall, and prostate lesions with concomitant gastric cancer. After curative surgical treatment of the gastric cancer, corticosteroid therapy for progressively decreasing renal function was started. Before starting steroid therapy, fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography revealed multiple lesions of IgG4-RD but no metastasis of the cancer...

Pulmonary nodular lymphoid hyperplasia (PNLH) may show heavy lymphoplasmacytic infiltrates with increased immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-positive plasma cells as in IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD). However, it is unclear whether PNLH could be a manifestation of IgG4-RD. A recent study reported the presence of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) in IgG4-related lymphadenopathy. We postulated that a subset of PNLH might represent IgG4-related lung disease with EBV-positive lymphocytes as has been reported in IgG4-related lymphadenopathy...

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a fibroinflammatory condition that was first recognised as a systemic disease in 2003, when patients with autoimmune pancreatitis were found to have extrapancreatic manifestations. Since 2003, IgG4-RD has been described in a diverse range of other organs including the biliary tree, orbits, lacrimal glands, salivary glands, lungs, kidneys, aorta, retroperitoneum, lymph nodes, pachymeninges, prostate and pituitary gland. The disease frequently occurs in the absence of pancreatic involvement...

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a systemic fibroinflammatory disease with protean manifestations involving virtually any organ in the body. At initial clinical presentation, 1 or multiple organs may be involved. Initial descriptions focused on pancreatic disease. It has, however, become clear that IgG4-RD can cause an immune-mediated fibroinflammatory process, commonly manifesting as mass-like lesions, in various regions of the body including the thorax where any compartment can be involved. This pathologic process is characterized by infiltration of IgG4+ plasma cells and a propensity to fibrosis leading to organ dysfunction which can be prevented by early diagnosis and corticosteroid therapy...

AIMS: There have been few reports on immunoglobulin-G4 (IgG4)-related interstitial pneumonia (IP), and its clinical features remain unclear. The objective of this study was to assess whether IP with marked IgG4-positive plasma cell infiltration without extrathoracic lesions of IgG4-related disease (RD) should be diagnosed as a subtype of IgG4-RD or a separate entity. METHODS AND RESULTS: All consecutive patients with surgical lung biopsy-proven idiopathic IP with an IgG4/IgG-positive cell ratio of >40% and >50 IgG4(+) plasma cells in a high-power field without extrathoracic lesions of IgG4-RD were reviewed retrospectively...

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a new disease entity that was established in this century. It is a systemic and chronic inflammatory disorder. Autoimmune pancreatitis is a representative condition, but there is clearly involvement from other organs, including the kidneys, the retroperitoneal cavity, the lungs, and the thyroid, lacrimal, salivary, pituitary, and prostate glands. To aid in the resolution of the numerous issues related to IgG4-RD, the authors established a registry system of patients in multicenter institutes with IgG4-RD-the SMART registry...

BACKGROUND: Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a multiorgan fibroinflammatory condition with lymphoplasmacytic infiltrates containing abundant IgG4-positive plasma cells. The immunopathogenesis of the disease and the potential role of triggering autoantigens or infectious factors have not been clearly defined. Immunoglobulin G4-related lung disease is a new and emerging condition in pediatric patients and to date, there have been only two reports regarding pulmonary manifestation of IgG4-RD in children recently published...

We report the case of a 61-year-old man with a pulmonary nodule discovered while staging the metastasis of a squamous cell carcinoma. No primary cancer was found. Histological examination of the resected specimen (lingula) was in favor of IgG4-related inflammatory pseudotumor. Histological criteria were described in 2012, combining a dense lymphoplasmacitic infiltrate rich in IgG4-positive plasma cell, storiform fibrosis and obliterative phlebitis. IgG4/IgG plama cell ratio>40 % is mandatory for histological diagnosis of IgG4-related disease...

BACKGROUND: Immunoglobulin G4-related disease is characterized by infiltration of immunoglobulin G4-positive plasmacytes in various organs. The radiological findings of lung involvement of immunoglobulin G4-related disease include hilar and mediastinal lymphadenopathies, thickness of bronchovascular bundles, peribronchovascular consolidation, and lung nodules. Although a pathological approach is needed to diagnose immunoglobulin G4-related disease, it is ordinarily diagnosed by biopsy from one lesion even if there are multiple lesions...

We describe a patient presenting with bilateral radiologically similar lung lesions initially diagnosed as immunoglobulin (Ig) G4-related disease from biopsy of one lesion, but radiographic changes 6 months later prompted biopsy of the second lesion and showed adenocarcinoma. No case of lung IgG4-related disease and a distant lung malignancy has been previously reported. This is notable because lung IgG4-related disease often manifests in multiple thoracic locations but is diagnosed from a representative biopsy specimen...

We report a case of immunoglobulin(Ig)G4-related disease with the radiologic and histopathological manifestations resembling usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP). The patient was a 62-year-old man who presented with progressive dyspnea of insidious onset. High resolution computed tomography of the chest showed lower-lobe predominant peripheral reticulation and traction bronchiectasis but no honeycomb change. Microscopic examination of the surgical lung biopsy showed characteristic features of UIP including architectural distortion by fibrosis with peripheral and paraseptal accentuation, scattered fibroblast foci and microscopic honeycomb change...

A 67-year-old man with a history of asbestos exposure and rounded atelectasis complained of cough and swelling in the left submandibular region. Computed tomography showed an increase in size of the right lower lung lobe lesion, which was recognized as the pre-existing rounded atelectasis, as well as swelling of the pancreas and submandibular glands. Biopsy from a submandibular gland and the pulmonary lesion led to a diagnosis of immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD). IgG4-RD is a recently recognized disease that was first reported as an autoimmune disease; however, some reports have indicated another pathogenesis of an allergic nature that is characterized by type 2 helper T cell (Th2) inflammation...

Immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related disease is a relatively recently proposed clinical-pathologic entity that is characterized by fibro-inflammatory lesions rich in IgG4-positive plasma cells and, often but not always, elevated serum IgG4 concentrations. IgG4-related disease was recognized as a systemic disease in 2003, when extrapancreatic manifestations were identified in patients with autoimmune pancreatitis. Since then, the disease has been reported as affecting virtually every organ system and has been identified in the biliary tree, salivary and lacrimal glands, periorbital tissues, lungs, lymph nodes, thyroid gland, kidneys, prostate gland, testicles, breasts, and pituitary gland...

Paragonimiasis is a parasitic pleuropulmonary infection caused by eating raw crustaceans and wild boar meat and this infection is endemic in Asia. We herein report two cases of pulmonary P aragonimus westermani infection associated with elevated levels of serum immunoglobulin (Ig) G4 and dense infiltration of IgG4-positive plasma cells in the lung lesions. Treatment with praziquantel resolved the pulmonary lesions and decreased the serum levels of IgG4. IgG4-related disease is a systemic disease occasionally involving the lungs and leads to increased serum levels of IgG4...
