ERLIJ O, Daniel et al. Differential diagnosis of cavitary pulmonary nodules: a propos of a clinical case. Rev. chil. enferm. respir. [online]. 2013, vol.29, n.1, pp.39-42. ISSN 0717-7348.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73482013000100006.

The differential diagnosis of cavitary pulmonary nodules is a great challenge, where the clinical context in addition to the image studies and laboratory tests are part of the key tools to guide the diagnostic process through 4 major etiological groups: infectious, neoplastic, rheumatologic and miscellaneous. We describe a case of a heavy smoker and complicated diabetic patient with cavitary pulmonary nodules, with a clinical context that induces certain etiologies such as infectious and neoplastic, but whose biopsy was compatible with Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (ex Wegener 's granulomatosis), without a clinical exam nor laboratory tests suggesting this finding.

Palavras-chave : Cavitary pulmonary nodules; Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's granulomatosis).
