709 Possible Causes for Bacteria, Empyema, X-Ray Abnormal

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    Despite most antibiotics' effectiveness in treating the disease, sometimes the bacteria can resist the antibiotics, causing symptoms to worsen.[en.wikipedia.org] All 3 patients were 2 years old, had an empyema complicating pneumococcal pneumonia, and developed renal failure with oliguria and required peritoneal dialysis for a period[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Diagnosis is typically made from an x ray of the lungs, which indicates the accumulation of fluid.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Gram-Negative Pneumonia

    J00-J99 Diseases of the respiratory system › J09-J18 Influenza and pneumonia › J15- Bacterial pneumonia, not elsewhere classified › Pneumonia due to other Gram-negative bacteria[icd10data.com] No specific roentgenographic features could be attributed to the remaining pathogens, with the exception of massive empyema and lobar consolidation in Bacteroides infection[pubs.rsna.org] Often the chest X-ray demonstrates an abnormal finding that may have a cause other than pneumonia.[acphospitalist.org]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    Bacterial pneumonia and gut bacteria-associated sepsis, frequently seen in alcoholics, can be controlled through the polarization of macrophage phenotypes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Empiric antibiotics for bacterial pneumonias complicated by empyema should include anaerobic coverage, as anaerobic bacteria are often cultured from empyemas. [48] Go to Parapneumonic[emedicine.medscape.com] A chest X-ray can help identify which part of the patient's lung is infected. An X-ray also can show abnormal fluid collections which also can help diagnose pneumonia.[emedicinehealth.com]

  • Staphylococcal Pneumonia

    Susceptibility testing was executed for the study population, whose pneumonia was triggered by various kinds of bacteria.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There were seven deaths, five in patients with empyema and two in patients without this complication.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In osteomyelitis, x-ray changes may not be apparent for 10 to 14 days, and bone rarefaction and periosteal reaction may not be detected for even longer.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    These bacteria are relatively common in selected types of lung infections including aspiration pneumonia, lung abscess, necrotizing pneumonia and emphyema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Aside from the drainage of empyemas, the primary therapy for aspiration pneumonia involves antimicrobial agents.[academic.oup.com] A chest x-ray confirms the diagnosis of pneumonia.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Streptococcus Pyogenes Pneumonia

    Type of Organism Disease Most Common Mode of Transmission Classic Features Bacteria Gram positive cocci Streptococcus pneumoniae *most common cause of community acquired pneumonia[atsu.edu] Management Management of empyemas is a controversial area.[cps.ca] The researchers found that this bacteria is stronger than other bacteria that do not form biofilms, leading them to believe that the bacteria may linger on surfaces.[medicalnewstoday.com]

  • Legionnaires' Disease

    No BAMC patients have presented similar flu-like symptoms related to the bacteria.[mysanantonio.com] The differential diagnosis of Legionnaires disease includes: Acute respiratory distress syndrome Aspiration pneumonia Bacterial pneumonia Bronchitis Empyema Gastroenteritis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chest X-rays often demonstrate abnormal densities (areas of that lungs that on the X-ray film appear whiter).[medicinenet.com]

  • Brucellosis

    The long interval spent by the organic remains under the volcanic mud and high temperatures they suffered preclude the possibility of identifying the bacteria through molecular[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Brucella abortus is the primary infective agent. 0 0 Human Brucella Infection with pulmonary involvement such as Empyema; Lung Abscess; and Pleural Effusion.[dictionary.university] Ultrasound and/or X-rays may help show abnormalities in the prostate and/or testicles, and inflammation of the spine in cases of discospondylitis.[akc.org]

  • Lung Abscess

    […] of oral bacteria was the mechanism of infection.[doi.org] […] with pleural empyema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In rare cases, bacteria are carried to lung vessels with the blood stream.[symptoma.com]

  • Bronchiectasis

    Mucus is a slimy substance that the airways produce to help remove inhaled dust, bacteria, and other small particles.[web.archive.org] Tuberculous empyema is a much less common finding.[emedicine.com] Chest x-ray is usually abnormal and may be diagnostic.[merckmanuals.com]
