164 Possible Causes for Bronchial Breath Sounds, Pleural Effusion

  • Pneumonia

    Diagnosis Physical examination Auscultation- Bronchial breath sounds or fine cracks over the affected area ?[] Following the development of malignant pleural effusion, he underwent chest drainage and was administered intrathoracic talc as a pleurodesis.[] Unexpectedly, this revealed a right lower lobe pneumonia and associated pleural effusion.[]

  • Tuberculosis

    Breath Sounds Dull chest pain, tightness, or discomfort [4] Dyspnea [4] Haemoptysis (late stage symptom) Associated Co-morbidities HIV/AIDS - due to comprised immunosuppressive[] The definitive diagnosis was BTB with pleural effusion. Treatment with a quadruple combinational antituberculous therapy was initiated.[] Patients with pulmonary TB may have the following: Abnormal breath sounds, especially over the upper lobes or involved areas Rales or bronchial breath signs, indicating lung[]

  • Atelectasis

    When the doctor listens to the lungs through a stethoscope (ausculation), diminished or bronchial breath sounds may be heard.[] Changes in lung density due to atelectasis, pleural effusion and pneumonia/pneumonitis are observed in lung cancer patients.[] We present a case of whole-lung torsion after massive pleural effusion and atelectasis.[]

  • Lung Abscess

    On examination of the chest there will be features of consolidation such as localized dullness on percussion and bronchial breath sounds .[] effusion.[] (right over the abscess) increased tactile & vocal fremitus, crackles & rhonchi, dull percussion note, bronchial breath sounds, diminished breath sounds what are the results[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Severe or mixed type (Type III) presented auscultatory abnormalities and variegated sounds, i. e. bronchial breath sounds in 10/15 (66.7%) and coarse crackles in 12/15 (80.0[] He was admitted for progression of left pleural effusion and consolidation in the left upper lobe.[] A Somali patient with previous tuberculosis presented clinically unwell with features consistent with a right-sided pleural effusion.[]

  • Pulmonary Histoplasmosis

    Other findings on the left side included decreased chest expansion, increased tactile vocal fremitus, dull percussion note, and bronchial breath sounds.[] Infection with H capsulatum was confirmed by culture of pleural effusion fluid, DNA probe analysis of the pleural fluid culture isolate, urinary Histoplasma antigen detection[] Ultrasound chest confirmed it to be a loculated pleural effusion.[]

  • Multidrug-resistant Tuberculosis

    Respiratory system exam revealed bronchial breath sounds in the right infraclavicular area. Admission baseline investigations showed anemia.[] We describe an HIV-infected patient with pleural and lymph node tuberculosis diagnosed by pleural effusion characteristics and biopsy specimens, without MT identification,[]

  • Pleural Effusion

    Above the effusion, where the lung is compressed, there may be bronchial breathing sounds and egophony .[] sounds Decreased Vocal resonance Bronchial breathing or aegophony (bleating vocal resonance) over top of effusion, due to lung compression Differential diagnosis of pleural[] […] parapneumonic effusion, tuberculous pleural effusion, and myelomatous pleural effusion (MPE).[]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    More than 90% will have a focal lung exam (most often crackles, bronchial breath sounds, or dullness to percussion).[] Pleural effusion: In this condition, fluid is accumulated around the lungs.[] Diagnosis Physical examination Auscultation- Bronchial breath sounds or fine cracks over the affected area ?[]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Larger effusions cause muffled heart sounds and, rarely, Ewart's sign (dullness to percussion, bronchial breath sounds, and egophony below the angle of the left scapula).[] Pleural fluid accumulation persisted despite a tube thoracostomy for pleural effusion drainage.[] Both the pleural effusion and the pericardial effusion in this patient subsequently improved with the relief of SVC stenosis.[]
