42 Possible Causes for Bronchiectasis, Increased Tactile Fremitus

  • Lung Abscess

    Empyema Bronchiectasis Abscess Pleural effusion[en.wikipedia.org] (right over the abscess) increased tactile & vocal fremitus, crackles & rhonchi, dull percussion note, bronchial breath sounds, diminished breath sounds what are the results[quizlet.com] Imaging tests (CXR, CT) demonstrated a lung abscess in the right lobe with an air-fluid level, peripheral bronchiectasis and pleural infusion.[aspergillus.org.uk]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Patients with previous PTB showed a higher prevalence of bronchiectasis ( p p 0.031), compared with those without previous PTB.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Radiologically, healed pulmonary TB can present with cicatrisation, fibro-cavitory disease, end-stage lung destruction, pulmonary calcification, bronchiectasis, trachea-bronchial[erj.ersjournals.com] Bronchiectasis of the upper lobes sometimes occurs from previous pulmonary tuberculosis. Pleural scarring may also appear [13, 14].[southsudanmedicaljournal.com]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Bronchiectasis Bronchiectasis is a chronic dilation and consequent infection of the bronchioles and bronchi that results from obstruction in the bronchi.[healthcommunities.com] In addition, non–small cell carcinomas may also be associated with other conditions such as bronchiectasis, pulmonary fibrosis, tuberculosis and other infectious processes[histopathology-india.net] Cystic fibrosis is an example of a disease that leads to bronchiectasis.[healthcommunities.com]

  • Multidrug-resistant Tuberculosis

    The extent of bronchiectasis was significantly greater in primary multidrug-resistant tuberculosis than in drug-sensitive tuberculosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
