@sharonp51 I think that type of granuloma is associated with an infectious disease. Sarcoid is an autoimmune disease not an infectious one. It can be active or inactive. So glad you were negative. Mycobacterium usually takes six or more weeks to grow. Other bacteria results come back quicker. How long ago was the scan? irene5

My original biopsy was 2017 They said it was not consistent with sarcoidosis. I am now waiting on the culture To see if anything grows from last week’s Bronchoscopy.
