113 Possible Causes for Bronchoalveolar Lavage Abnormal

  • Hypereosinophilic Syndrome

    Background Hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) encompasses a wide range of clinical manifestations sharing 3 features defined by Chusid et al [1] : (1) a peripheral eosinophil count of greater than 1.5 X 10 9 /L for longer than 6 months; (2) evidence of organ involvement, thus excluding benign eosinophilia; and (3) an[…][emedicine.com]

  • Asthma

    Results from bronchoalveolar lavage studies have not demonstrated an increase in inflammatory mediators.[emedicine.medscape.com] The abnormal heat and water fluxes in the bronchial tree result in bronchoconstriction, occurring within minutes of completing exercise.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Atelectasis

    Atelectasis in 12 ventilated adults was associated with increased total protein, inflammatory markers and reduced surfactant in the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, suggesting[ccforum.biomedcentral.com] […] increased alveolar-capillary permeability, severe surfactant abnormalities, and signs of local inflammatory reaction [ 13 ].[ccforum.biomedcentral.com]

  • Pleuropulmonary Blastoma

    Bronchoalveolar lavage was performed in four cases and was abnormal in all, but demonstrated no consistent pattern. Most patients exhibited lung restriction.[mafiadoc.com]

  • Lingular Pneumonia

  • Uremic Pneumonitis

    lavage, which will detect abnormalities in both asymptomatic as well as symptomatic patients with normal chest radiographs.[thoracickey.com] […] for most of the collagen vascular diseases, primarily due to increased recognition and more sensitive screening techniques such as high-resolution computed tomography and bronchoalveolar[thoracickey.com]

  • Rib Fracture

  • Pittsburgh Pneumonia

    Persistent fevers and the absence of an identified etiologic agent prompted a diagnostic bronchoscopy with bronchoalveolar lavage(BAL * ) and transbronchial biopsy.[journals.lww.com] The airways appeared diffusely mildly inflamed without discrete endobronchial abnormalities.[journals.lww.com]

  • Foodborne Disease
