COMMENTS

Hilar adenopathy (due to sarcoid). Hilar adenopathy must be distinguished from enlargement of the hilar vasculature (such as by pulmonary hypertension). Hilar lymph nodes appear more nodular and "lumpy" than hilar vessels which usually retain their branching pattern when enlarged. Bilateral hilar adenopathy implies diseases that are generalized and include sarcoid and lymphoma.
