154 Possible Causes for Cardiomegaly on Chest X-ray, Pulmonary Infiltrate

  • Pulmonary Edema

    pulmonary infiltrates.[] infiltrates.[] The DAH triad (hemoptysis, anemia, and pulmonary infiltrates) was observed in 50% of episodes (n 9/18), and acute respiratory failure in 94% (n 17/18).[]

  • Hodgkin's Disease

    Histopathologic examination showed a mixed population of atypical lymphoid cells that had infiltrated into the pulmonary blood vessels angiocentrically.[]

  • Hypereosinophilic Syndrome

    […] connective tissue disorders ( M30-M36 ) pulmonary infiltrate NOS ( R91.8 ) J82 ) pulmonary eosinophilia ( ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code J82 Pulmonary eosinophilia, not elsewhere[] Respiratory Symptom • Chronic, persistent,nonproductive cough • Asthma • Respiratory symptoms due to CHF • Pulmonary emboli • Eosinophilic lung infiltratesPulmonary fibrosis[] A skin biopsy showed no evidence of pathologic infiltration.[]

  • Bacterial Endocarditis

    Chest radiograph showed extensive pulmonary reticulonodular infiltrates. Echocardiography revealed ventricular septal defect.[] A combination of sepsis and pulmonary infiltrates on the CXR is highly suggestive of right sided endocarditis.[] The pulmonary infiltrates disappeared gradually. However, renal function did not improve, even after trial of a course of immunosuppressive therapy.[]

  • Tetralogy of Fallot

    Chest X-ray showed a “boot shaped” cardiac silhouette with an upturned apex and slight concave pulmonary artery segment (Figure 1A). No pulmonary infiltrates were found.[] The chest X-rays on the left posteroanterior and lateral views revealed cardiomegaly and a reduction in the pulmonary flow.[]

  • Idiopathic Hypereosinophilic Syndrome

    Respiratory distress and pulmonary infiltration with eosinophils developed.[] Chest X-ray showed marked cardiomegaly, and echocardiogram revealed large pericardial effusion. Other causes of pericarditis were excluded.[] Though there were bilateral infiltrations on X-ray chest, the symptoms attributable to pulmonary eosinophilia were absent.[]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Chest X-ray demonstrating enlarged cardiac silhouette and bilateral pulmonary infiltrates or oedema (credit: Rae Wake. Permission obtained from patient) Figure 2.[] We suggest that any patient who develops chest pain, tachycardia, cardiomegaly on chest X-ray or has signs of hypoxemia should be evaluated for PEF through echocardiography[] ECG strip showing declining and rising QRS amplitude in a patient with pericardial effusion Chest X-ray: Chest X ray can show cardiomegaly if sufficient fluid is present.[]

  • Infective Endocarditis

    infiltrates might be a clue that septic emboli may be present ( Osman 2013 ) CT scan Good for looking at complications in the chest, abdomen and pelvis (abscesses, pseudoanuerysms[] X-ray [ edit ] Chest X-rays are frequently used to aid in the diagnosis of CHF.[] […] coronary artery involvement) Conduction abnormalities: Complete heart block, atrioventricular block, and bundle branch blocks CXR No specific finding for IE Multiple bilateral pulmonary[]

  • Scorpion Sting

    A 30-year-old man developed bilateral pulmonary infiltrates with blood eosinophilia after receiving a scorpion sting.[] Chest X-ray revealed cardiomegaly in 8 and pulmonary oedema in 13 patients.[] Bedside chest X-ray taken in emergency showed marked bilateral infiltrates suggestive of pulmonary oedema.[]

  • Pericarditis

    Patients may develop pulmonary infiltrates and large pericardial effusions.[] Bilateral pleural effusion, patchy infiltration at right middle lung field, and cardiomegaly were noted on chest X-ray (Figure 1A ).[] Chest x-ray (although may have unspecific findings, it is easily accessible with low radiation exposure) findings: Epicardial halo (luscent lines within the cardiopericardial[]
