99 Possible Causes for Bilateral Pulmonary Infiltrate, Ground Glass Appearance, Pleural Effusion

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    The disease is characterized by bilateral pulmonary infiltrates and severe hypoxemia due to increased alveolar-capillary permeability.[] Real-time polymerase chain reaction tests of sputum and pleural effusion samples confirmed adenovirus serotype 7.[] Late phase and appearances in long-term survivors CT appearances can be variable in this phase: complete resolution: may occur in some cases coarse reticular pattern and ground-glass[]

  • Q Fever

    Pneumopathy is mostly moderate but pleural effusion or acute respiratory distress may occur. Symptoms may last 10-90 days.[] effusions or interstitial fibrosis if the lung is involved.[] […] cultures are usually negative Lumbar puncture to sample CSF if patient has meningoencephalitis Imaging Depends on which organ system is involved: CXR may show opacification, pleural[]

  • Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia

    pulmonary infiltrates with hyperaeration.[] We report a case of a renal transplant recipient with PCP and moderate-sized pleural effusion with pneumocystis cysts.[] The left X-ray shows a much more subtle ground-glass appearance while the right X-ray shows a much more gross ground-glass appearance mimicking pulmonary edema. [3] X-ray[]

  • Bronchioloalveolar Carcinoma

    A 52-year-old woman with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) developed weight loss, cough, and breathing difficulties, accompanied by extensive bilateral pulmonary infiltrates[] PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with histologically confirmed stage IIIB (with malignant pleural effusion) or stage IV adenocarcinoma with BAC features or pure BAC were eligible[] All nonmucinous BACs appeared as a pure ground-glass opacity (GGO) nodule, whereas mucinous BACs appeared as solid (n 4) or part-solid (n 2) nodules.[]

  • Chronic Eosinophilic Pneumonia

    Peripheral blood eosinophilia, multiple bilateral pulmonary infiltrates to the x-ray, multiple nodules with a surrounding ground-glass halo and peripheral predominance to[] Pleural effusions are rarely seen. We report a case of chronic eosinophilic pneumonia with transudative eosinophilic pleural effusion.[] Her chest x-ray was clear ( Fig. 1 ), and the computed tomography (CT) scan of the chest ( Fig. 2 ) revealed a left lower and a medial right lower lobe ground-glass appearance[]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    He still experienced pleural effusion and had symptoms of cough and shortness of breath. Chest X-ray demonstrated bilateral pleural effusion.[] glass” or mosaic pattern can also be observed in pulmonary venoocclusive disease; however, in that disease, the ground glass appearance is coupled by thickening of the interlobular[] Echography showed a moderate amount of pleural effusion on both sides and no dilatation of the right cardiac ventricle.[]

  • Staphylococcal Pneumonia

    In pulmonary-pleural form in the affectedlung development occurs abscessed or infiltrative lesions.[] So radiological finding of pleural effusion with displacement of mediastinum to the left and the presence of bowel gas high in the right upper quadrant should alert the possibility[] […] admission, repeat high-resolution computerized tomography of the chest showed extensive and homogeneous consolidation of left upper and lower lobes, accompanied by bilateral ground-glass[]

  • Lymphomatoid Granulomatosis

    We report the case of a 23-year-old man clinically presented with fever, sweating, and physical intolerance, and bilateral pulmonary infiltrates of nodular type and destructive[] […] of pleural effusion in our environment like pneumonia, empyema and tuberculosis needed to be ruled out.[] B) After rituximab treatment, the prior nodular lung lesions decreased dramatically, but newly developed interstitial ground glass opacities appeared.

  • Pneumonia

    He was eventually diagnosed with sarcoidosis based on bilateral lung infiltrates and granulomas in a transbronchial biopsy.[] KEYWORDS Pleural effusion - empyema - lung abscess - malignant pleural effusion - interventional radiology REFERENCES 1 Light R W. Pleural Diseases. 4th ed.[] The main radiological findings include airspace consolidations, ground-glass attenuation, airspace nodules and ‘crazy-paving’ pattern.[]

  • Bronchiolitis Obliterans

    Epler GRMark EJ A 65-year-old woman with bilateral pulmonary infiltrates. N Engl J Med. 1986;3141627- 1635 Google Scholar Crossref 55.[] We describe a case of SLE presenting with shortness of breath, found to have pneumothorax, bilateral nodular infiltrates along with pleural effusions and pericardial effusion[] This appears with a “ground-glass” haziness that is characteristic for the disease.
