Letter: Pelecitus, a peritracheal
nematode in the pigeon.
Chest radiograph revealed right middle and lower lobe alveolar infiltrates and right hilar and peritracheal
soft tissue fullness.
In 1998, Bassam et al reported another case of cauda equina sarcoidosis with concomitant bilateral hilar and peritracheal
The CT scan of the chest revealed large peritracheal
and axillary soft tissue masses on the right side that were suggestive of metastatic disease.
Fluoroscopy revealed tracheal injury with peritracheal
Ecchymoses were especially present within the myocardium, submeningeally in the brain, in the peritracheal
connective tissue, and within the lungs.
These tumors frequently metastasize to parotid, cervical, and retroauricular nodes and occasionally to supraclavicular and peritracheal
