Abstract: Mediastinal lymphadenomegaly secondary to hypervolemia is an underdiagnosed tomographic finding. Herein we describe, in a patient with normal cardiac function, findings of pulmonary congestion associated to lymph node enlargement. The nephrotic syndrome causing hypoalbuminemia, low plasma colloid osmotic pressure and augmented transcapillary fluid leakage was the probable cause of the radiological findings.

Linfadenomegalias mediastinais secundárias a hipervolemia são achados tomográficos subdiagnosticados. Descrevemos neste paciente com função cardíaca normal, achados de congestão pulmonar associados a alargamento dos linfonodos mediastinais. A síndrome nefrótica causando hipoalbuminemia, baixa pressão oncótica plasmática e aumento da pressão transcapilar foi a causa provável dos achados radiológicos.
