The exact cause of fibrosing mediastinitis is not fully understood, but it is not inherited. Many cases are linked to a specific type of fungal infection called histoplasmosis. Treatment depends on which structures of the mediastinum are affected, the severity of the scarring and, in some cases, the cause of the condition. Other less common causes of fibrosing mediastinitis include radiation therapy, autoimmune disease, tuberculosis, certain medications, Behcet’s disease, and inflammatory diseases such as sarcoidosis in roughly 10-20% of cases, the cause of fibrosing mediastinitis cannot be determined.
