315 Possible Causes for Cavitary Lesion

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    In a second part of the protocol, the virtual bronchoscopy will be used to perform a descriptive analysis of cavitary lung lesions.[clinicaltrials.gov]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    lesions on imaging, 3)risk factors for unusual organisms (e.g., bronchiectasis) or 4)underlying liver disease.[clinicaladvisor.com] […] are most likely to have positive cultures can increase the yield.Thus guidelines recommend obtainingblood cultures in patients with 1) severe CAP (admitted to the ICU), 2)cavitary[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis

    CT of the chest showed two right-sided cavitary lesions. CT of the abdomen and pelvis demonstrated a prostatic abscess.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tissue biopsy establishes the histologic diagnosis; chest x-ray may disclose nodular, diffuse, or cavitary lesions; and laboratory evaluation may note proteinuria or hematuria[aao.org] Chest CT without contrast is nearly always necessary because the chest x-ray may miss nodules, masses, and/or cavitary lesions caused by granulomatosis with polyangiitis.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Lung Abscess

    A case of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is being described in a 52-year-old female patient who presented with a cavitary lesion on skiagram chest and simulating[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A chest X-ray showed a cavitary lesion with an air-fluid level in the right lung.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, this procedure has rarely been performed in cavitary lesions of advanced tumor origin before initiating any chemotherapy/radiotherapy scheme.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Computed tomography chest with contrast identified a large cavitary lesion in the right upper lobe (RUL).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] LESIONS: With control of the infection and elimination of tubercle bacilli cavitary lesions undergo a healing process which results in their linings undergoing transformation[granuloma.homestead.com] Advanced cavitary fibrocaseous tuberculosis presents large lesions extended to one or more pulmonary lobes.[pathologyatlas.ro]

  • Aspergillosis

    (b) Photograph of an autopsy specimen from the left upper lobe shows an irregular cavitary lesion with regular margins and a dark brown appearance caused by necrotic material[pubs.rsna.org] lesions or cystic airspaces; and from the rare Aspergillus pneumonia, which occurs in patients who take low doses of prednisone long term (eg, patients with COPD ).[msdmanuals.com] A movable fungus ball within a cavitary lesion is characteristic on both, although most lesions are focal and solid.[msdmanuals.com]

  • Pulmonary Contusion

    In the setting of pulmonary contusion, massive crystalloid resuscitation of hemorrhagic shock may promote increased lung water leading to stiffer lungs and ultimately culminating in adult respiratory distress syndrome. The emergence of fluids that enable the clinician to resuscitate the bleeding trauma victim by using[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Cavitary Tuberculosis

  • Pulmonary Actinomycosis

  • Silicotuberculosis

    A 76-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital four times from November 2007 to June 2009. In this complex case, the patient had silicosis complicated by broncholithiasis, oesophagobronchial fistulas, and relapsed tuberculosis. She had worked as a stone crusher for 3 years and was exposed to a large amount of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
