51 Possible Causes for Chronic Bronchitis, Clubbed Finger, Lung Function Testing Abnormal

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Individuals with chronic bronchitis or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may suffer recurrent exacerbations with an increase in volume or purulence of sputum, or[] Examples include: finger clubbing, wheezing, exercise intolerance, chest tightness, cough productive of sputum, and coughing up blood.[] Other test abnormalities may include Increased total lung capacity Increased functional residual capacity Increased residual volume Decreased vital capacity Decreased single-breath[]

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    CFTR mutations do not increase the risk of COPD with chronic bronchitis.[] Finger clubbing and changes in the bronchial circulation.[] Any abnormalities in these functions may indicate cystic fibrosis.[]

  • Pneumoconiosis

    Mineral dust small airways disease, pneumoconiosis (macules and nodules), and pathologic changes consistent with chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and interstitial fibrosis predominated[] Clubbing of fingers and crackles in lungs are noted in asbestosis. Pulmonary function tests reveal reduced lung capacity.[] bronchitis and progressive dyspnea on exertion for 8years.[]

  • Silicosis

    In smokers, emphysema and chronic bronchitis should first be excluded as possible causes of dyspnea.[] Then, as the disease gets worse, it can cause weight loss, extreme tiredness, wheezing and sometimes swollen fingers ( finger clubbing ).[] Chest pain and finger clubbing are not features of silicosis. Systemic symptoms, such as fever and weight loss, suggest complicating infection or neoplastic disease.[]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Chronic bronchitis is a disease that is recognized in terrier breeds and a long-standing case may mimic a case of IPF ( 4, 5 ).[] Symptoms can include: shortness of breath a persistent dry cough tiredness loss of appetite and weight loss rounded and swollen fingertips (clubbed fingers) Many people ignore[] In our patient population, physiologic testing was more sensitive than HRCT in detecting mild abnormalities in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis proved by biopsy[]

  • Lymphocytic Interstitial Pneumonia

    Long term domiciliary oxygen therapy in chronic hypoxic cor pulmonale complicating chronic bronchitis and emphysema.[] […] and toes (clubbing), and breathing symptoms such as shortness of breath and wheezing.[] The uncorrected diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide was decreased and gas exchange during maximal exercise testing was abnormal (table 3 ).[]

  • Asbestosis

    bronchitis or tuberculosis and the inherent class bias of middle class doctors against workers.[] This lack of oxygen can cause the clubbing. Patients with mesothelioma may develop clubbed fingers, but it is more rare.[] […] shadowing on the chest x-ray and abnormalities of lung function tests.[]

  • Chronic Interstitial Lung Disease

    -Asthma -COPD (emphysema/chronic bronchitis) -Bronchiectasis -Cystic Fibrosis Summarize restrictive lung disorders.[] The following symptoms are the most common signs of interstitial lung disease: Shortness of breath Increasing fatigue during exertion Coughing Chest pain Clubbed fingers Fever[] A chest x-ray will probably be ordered with lung function tests, both of which generally reveal significant abnormalities.[]

  • Extrinsic Allergic Alveolitis

    Chronic bronchitis can result from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which is the most common respiratory syndrome among agricultural workers.[] He was clinically anaemic but had no finger clubbing, lymphadenopathy or splenomegaly.[] […] without predilection for specific side or lung segment Presentation Cough Dyspnea Fever Chills Wheezing Malaise Laboratory Tests Pulmonary function tests may be abnormal[]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Chronic Bronchitis Chronic bronchitis is an ongoing, serious condition.[] fingers), swelling of the legs, or severe breathlessness.[] Other test abnormalities may include Increased total lung capacity Increased functional residual capacity Increased residual volume Decreased vital capacity Decreased single-breath[]
