The spectrum of pulmonary granulomatoses is wide and includes infectious and noninfectious entities, each with very different therapeutic consequences. The first step of histological examination discriminates between necrotizing and non-necrotizing granulomatosis. After this, an infectious cause of the granulomatosis has to be excluded by special histological stains and molecular-pathologic methods, if necessary. Diagnosis also includes clinical, radiological, and microbiological findings. The process of pathological examination should be standardized as described.
