142 Possible Causes for Acid-Fast Bacteria, Granulomatous Tissue, Pulmonary Tuberculosis

  • Pleural Tuberculosis

    This granulomatous involvement of the tracheobronchial tree can ulcerate, which on healing produces fibrotic bronchostenosis and post-obstructive bronchiectasis.[] […] pleurisy who had high ADA values had a higher probability of manifesting pulmonary tuberculosis.[] Nocardia asteroides is an aerobic, gram positive, weakly acid fast filamentous bacteria found commonly in the soil.[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Histological examination of the lesions showed granulomatous tissue with caseaous necrosis consistent with tuberculosis.[] The authors report a case of coinfection of pulmonary paragonimiasis and pulmonary tuberculosis which is an uncommon coinfection.[] […] be apparent. 4 Consider the possibility of disseminated extrapulmonary TB if the patient has advanced HIV infection. 11 The definitive diagnosis of TB requires culture of acid-fast[]

  • Laryngeal Tuberculosis

    Granulomatous tissue was present in the posterior commissure.[] Abstract The incidence of laryngeal tuberculosis in 341 patients with pulmonary tuberculosis was assessed in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.[] The bacteriologic examination of the sputum was positive for acid-fast bacteria.[]

  • Atypical Mycobacteria

    This study was conducted to examine drug-resistant tuberculosis and prevalence of infection with atypical mycobacteria in Honduran patients with suspected pulmonary tuberculosis[] Mycobacterial infection is increasing, partly due to emerging drug resistance and the HIV epidemic. [ 2 ] Non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are acid-fast bacteria, widespread[] fast) stain (right: lymph node) Positive stains Acid fast stains large numbers of intracellular bacteria; bacilli are longer (20 microns), more coarsely beaded and more bent[]

  • Meningeal Tuberculosis

    There is extensive necrosis and bony destruction with compressed fractures (with kyphosis) and extension to soft tissues, including psoas "cold" abscess.[] The genotype of M. tuberculosis influenced the presenting features of pulmonary and meningeal tuberculosis.[] This study was to evaluate the possible association between CCL1 rs2072069 G/A or/and TLR2 rs3804099 T/C (T597C) polymorphisms and pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) or/and tuberculous[]

  • Silicotuberculosis

    It is concluded that this is an effective means of treatment for pulmonary tuberculosis in patients with silicosis as well as in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis only,[] We describe a cascade of complications-active pulmonary tuberculosis despite recent isoniazid prophylactic therapy, non-tuberculous mycobacterial disease, chronic airways[] . silicotuberculosis (sĭl″ĭ-kō-tū-bĕr-kū-lō′sĭs) [″ tuberculum , a little swelling, Gr. osis , condition] Silicosis associated with pulmonary tuberculosis.[]

  • Disseminated Tuberculosis

    Sections of lung tissue showed granulomatous inflammation composed of epitheloid cells a few lymphocytes and caseous necrosis.[] Three consecutive sets of sputum showed acid-fast bacteria, and liquid culture grew Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB; Figure 3).[] Chest radiogram revealed bilateral pulmonary tuberculosis.[]

  • Spinal Tuberculosis

    However, epidural granulomatous tissue or tuberculoma of the spinal cord may not be detected by these tools [ 8 ].[] Nonpathogenic acid-fast bacteria are present in the lesions and affected cattle are positive to the tuberculin test.[] We hypothesized that a genetic difference may exist between the development of STB and pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB).[]

  • Joint Tuberculosis

    granulomatous inflammatory tissue with strains of acid-fast bacilli which was confirmed as M. tuberculosis bacilli by the microbiological testing.[] OBJECTIVE: To isolate and characterise in vivo released 41 kDa mycobacterial antigen in pulmonary and bone and joint tuberculosis (TB) and its identification with in vitro[] TB and BCG showed positive while other bacteria were negative. (2) In 98 cases from patients with joint TB, 81 were positive by PCR, 6 by acid-fast staining, and 17 by culture[]

  • Pulmonary Atypical Mycobacterial Infection

    MAC was isolated from cultures of the lung tissue. Fungal culture and bacterial cultures for both aerobic and anaerobic bacteria from the lung tissue were negative.[] tuberculosis (PTb) relapse is the first diagnosis evoked when patients with previous history of PTb develop respiratory symptoms.[] Mycobacterial infection is increasing, partly due to emerging drug resistance and the HIV epidemic. [ 2 ] Non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are acid-fast bacteria, widespread[]
