Abstract

Sarcoid like reaction is an interesting entity in cases treated by checkpoint inhibitor treatment and suggests a good response to therapy. Here a case with granulomatous reaction has been reported in a case with malignant mesothelioma treated by nivolumab.This entity may simulate disease progression by imaging modalities especially in PET/CT.
