      Cavitating lesion in right upper lobe.
      A nodular lesion in right lower zone.
      A few small cavitating lesions in both lungs.

      My first possibility could be septic emboli.(? History of fever / history of any infective focus) Differential 1. Rheumatoid nodule with cavitation, 2. cavitating metastasis from squamous primary.

    3. José Vilar says:

      This patient had long standing upper respiratory symptoms, with sinusitis.

      Perhaps, histoplasmosis ?

    5. Éric Wafflart says:

      Wegener disease

    6. S says:

      Multiple cavitating lung nodules with history of sinusitis would be suspicious for granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener’s).

    7. pavlos says:

      Wegener’s granulomatosis (cavitating lesions, sinusitis, RT hilar lympadenopathy?)
      Correlation with c-ANCA level
