Mediastinal lymphadenopathy due to various infective agents such as Mycobacterium and fungus, due to sarcoidosis, lymphoma, and metastasis is often seen. Ordinary bacteria have rarely been reported to cause necrotizing, usually suppurative granulomatous reactions. We report a case of mediastinal lymphadenopathy due to Pseudomonas infection, in a patient of chronic kidney disease on maintenance hemodialysis, who presented with fever, breathlessness, and low blood pressure.
