23 Possible Causes for Coccidioides Immitis, Miliary Infiltrate of the Lung, X-Ray Abnormal

  • Chronic Pulmonary Coccidioidomycosis

    Last updated April 3, 2018 occidioidomycosis is an infectious disease caused by inhaling the spores of two related fungi, namely Coccidioides immitis and Coccidioides posadasii[dovemed.com] Diagnostic Test Results-Imaging Chest X-ray shows bilateral diffuse infiltrates, nodules, mediastinal or hilar adenopathy, or pleural effusion.[quizlet.com] Coccidioides immitis was detected in the resected specimen, and he was diagnosed with chronic pulmonary coccidioidomycosis (Coccidioidoma).[jstage.jst.go.jp]

  • Disseminated Coccidioidomycosis

    Despite 5 weeks of amphotericin B therapy (1 to 5 mg/kg/d), she remained persistently symptomatic with leukocytosis and tracheal aspirates repeatedly grew Coccidioides immitis[aspergillus.org.uk] Chest x rays are used to find lung abnormalities, however, the specific disease causing the abnormalities is difficult to identify from the x ray alone.[encyclopedia.com] We report a case of paravertebral and intravertebral abscesses caused by Coccidioides immitis in a Japanese man.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Silicosis

    While most studies have shown that desert environments harbor diverse mycological communities, fungi such as Coccidioides immitis and Coccidioides posadasii are known to be[doi.org] The initial chest X-ray was abnormal in all six cases with radiological evidence of silicosis (International Labour Office profusion category 1/1) on imaging, and all had[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] granuloma), and other diffuse infiltrate pulmonary diseases.[mountsinai.org]

[Medline] .[emedicine.medscape.com] A chest x-ray film taken nearly three years later revealed complete resolution of the radiographic abnormalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Routine and sometimes specialized X-rays and scans of the person's bones, skull, and lungs may be pursued. Blood testing may also be performed.[disabled-world.com]

  • Blastomycosis

    Immunological procedure for the rapid and specific identification of Coccidioides immitis cultures. J. Clin. Microbiol. 5: 149–153. Google Scholar 11. Standard, P.[doi.org] Chest x-rays are abnormal in two-thirds of patients and “may reveal alveolar or mass like infiltrates, reticulonodular pattern, pleural effusion, and, rarely, cavitation”.[austincc.edu] While any organ may be involved, lung involvement is most common, manifesting either as a lobar infiltrate resembling a bacterial pneumonia, a miliary infiltration similar[doi.org]

  • Pulmonary Candidiasis

    Coccidioides immitis causing coccidioidomycosis. Blastomyces dermatitidis causing blastomycosis. Paracoccidioides brasiliensis causing paracoccidioidomycosis.[patient.info] On the other hand, lung transplant recipients present less specific patchy infiltrates. [4] Miliary infiltration occurs in patients with disseminated disease.[emedicine.medscape.com] Some fungi associated with systemic infections, such as Coccidioides immitis and Blastomyces dermatitidis, may also cause skin rashes or lesions.[labtestsonline.org]
