  • Pulmonary Infarction

  • Sarcoidosis

    infiltration, skin and ocular lesions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Severe involvement of the lung by sarcoidosis can eventually strain the right side of the heart, causing right-sided heart failure (cor pulmonale—see see Cor Pulmonale: A[web.archive.org] Sarcoidosis is a granulomatous disease that most frequently affects the lungs with pulmonary infiltrates and/or bilateral hilar and mediastinal lymphadenopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Talcosis

    Pulmonary talcosis must be considered in the differential diagnosis of pulmonary infiltrates of HIV-positive drug addicts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is closely related to other silicosis variants and can lead to pulmonary hypertension with cor pulmonale in fatal manifestations.[symptoma.com] Late complications include chronic respiratory failure, emphysema, pulmonary arterial hypertension, and cor pulmonale.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
