Özet

Contrast enhanced CT examination of a 22-year-old male with pleuritic chest pain showed pleural-based nodular thickening and masses without any parenchymal involvement or mediastinal lymphadenopathy. Pathological examination following right parietal pleural decortication showed multiple granulomas with caseation necrosis typical of tuberculosis. Pleural tuberculosis presenting with multiple pleural nodules and masses without parenchymal involvement or lymphadenopathy has, to our knowledge, never been reported in the English literature.
