1,391 Possible Causes for Cough, Fever, Pneumothorax

  • Atelectasis

    When there is no apparent cause, the condition is known as spontaneous pneumothorax.[nm.org] Treatment includes maintaining coughing and deep breathing and treating the cause.[merckmanuals.com] Using chi 2 analysis, no association could be found between fever and amount of atelectasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

He still experienced pleural effusion and had symptoms of cough and shortness of breath.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] High grade fever is a rare presentation of thromboembolic phenomenon.

  • Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia

    The need for mechanical ventilation and/or development of a pneumothorax (OR, 20.9; 95% CI, 1.9-227.2; 0.01) and delayed ICU admission (OR, 9.7; 95% CI, 2.2-42.1; 0.002) were[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Most patients had fever, progressive dyspnea, and dry cough at onset of PCP. The mean duration of symptoms before PCP diagnosis was 7 days.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient presented with a fever of unknown origin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bronchiectasis

    Surgery is indicated in unsuccessful medical treatment and complications of bronchiectasis e.g. haemoptysis, lung abscess, lung masses and pneumothorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Some patients however have ongoing non-productive cough symptoms suggesting a cough sensitisation syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 21-year-old woman presented to our hospital with a 9-day history of productive cough and fever. Bronchiectasis after Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mycoplasma Pneumonia

    The aim of this study was to clarify cough sensitivity in Mycoplasma pneumonia, which is a well known acute lower respiratory infection with persistent nonproductive cough[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She had a dual infection with dengue hemorrhagic fever with unusual manifestations; liver failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] fever or 3 days (10.01 /- 11.74 pg/mL, p 0.05).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Active pleural drainage of the pneumothorax was unsuccessful and after two months, surgical suture of the lung was performed under general anaesthesia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The symptoms were long-lasting dry cough, fever and physical deterioration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Common presenting features include dyspnea, cough, low-grade fever, inspiratory crackles, and digital clubbing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
