562 Possible Causes for Bacterial Pneumonia, Fever, Pneumothorax

  • Atelectasis

    Causes of Atelectasis TB Tumour Injury Blood Clot Tumour Pneumonia Viral Infection Fungal Infection Bacterial Infection If not treated properly, Atelectasis may cause Lack[herbpathy.com] When there is no apparent cause, the condition is known as spontaneous pneumothorax.[nm.org] Using chi 2 analysis, no association could be found between fever and amount of atelectasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Staphylococcal Pneumonia

    Bacterial pneumonia is a type of pneumonia caused by bacterial infection. [1] Types [ edit ] Gram-positive [ edit ] Streptococcus pneumoniae ( J13 ) is the most common bacterial[en.wikipedia.org] The delayed and subacute/chronic nature of the tension pneumothorax is unusual.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fever and signs of pleural effusion and respiratory distress were common in primary disease while fever and a toxic appearance were frequent with disseminated illness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lung Abscess

    Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a common cause of community-acquired pneumonia in children, while lung abscess is a severe complication of bacterial pneumonias caused mainly by pyogenes[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a case of acute empyema with intractable pneumothorax associated with ruptured lung abscess caused by Mycobacterium avium in an immunocompromised patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 59 year old man presented to our hospital with a 1 month history of cough and low grade fever progressing to high grade fever for 1 week.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    The major utility of the chest film is in finding other causes of the patient’s symptoms (i.e. an infiltrate in pneumonia or absent lung markings in pneumothorax).[clinicaladvisor.com] High grade fever is a rare presentation of thromboembolic phenomenon. A middle aged woman presented with high grade fevers.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pneumothorax. Sepsis. Assessment [ 4 ] NB: treatment may precede investigations if the patient is very ill (see 'Initial management' below).[patient.info]

  • Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia

    Abstract We compared the incidence of bacterial pneumonia among 336 patients who discontinued trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) as prophylaxis against Pneumocystis carinii[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The need for mechanical ventilation and/or development of a pneumothorax (OR, 20.9; 95% CI, 1.9-227.2; 0.01) and delayed ICU admission (OR, 9.7; 95% CI, 2.2-42.1; 0.002) were[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient presented with a fever of unknown origin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Streptococcus Pyogenes Pneumonia

    Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP): This is the most common type of bacterial pneumonia.[healthline.com] Dead 7 h after hospitalization Weinblatt et al [ 20 ] 2009 54, female Rheumatoid arthritis 1 week 110/70 mm Hg, 110 bpm, 38.9 C CTRX CLDM VCM Acute respiratory failure, pneumothorax[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pyogenes (Diseases non Toxin) 1) Impetigo 2) Pharyngitis 3) cellulitis erysipelas 4) Rheumatic fever 5) Glomerulonephritis S.[quizlet.com]

  • Bronchiectasis

    Causes include 1-7,9 : post-infective (most common) necrotizing bacterial pneumonia, e.g S. aureus , Klebsiella spp., B. pertussis granulomatous disease, e.g. tuberculosis[radiopaedia.org] Surgery is indicated in unsuccessful medical treatment and complications of bronchiectasis e.g. haemoptysis, lung abscess, lung masses and pneumothorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 21-year-old woman presented to our hospital with a 9-day history of productive cough and fever. Bronchiectasis after Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pleurisy

    Pleurisy by itself is not contagious but you can catch microbes from a person who has pleurisy associated with flu, viral or bacterial pneumonia.[ehealthstar.com] A lung disease or acute lung injury can cause a pneumothorax. Some lung procedures also can cause a pneumothorax.[web.archive.org] The onset of pleurisy was accompanied by acute fever.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis

    Individuals with PAP are more vulnerable to lung infections such as bacterial pneumonia, mycobacterium avium-intracellulare infection, or a fungal infection.[en.wikipedia.org] Active pleural drainage of the pneumothorax was unsuccessful and after two months, surgical suture of the lung was performed under general anaesthesia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Common presenting features include dyspnea, cough, low-grade fever, inspiratory crackles, and digital clubbing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
