234 Possible Causes for Cough, Ground Glass Appearance

  • Pneumonia

    Cough is often distressing for patients with pneumonia. Accordingly they often use over-the-counter (OTC) cough medications (mucolytics or cough suppressants).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The main radiological findings include airspace consolidations, ground-glass attenuation, airspace nodules and ‘crazy-paving’ pattern.[doi.org] Objective measurements of cough indices (cough frequency, cough receptor sensitivity).[dx.doi.org]

  • Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia

    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] High-resolution computed tomography reveals interlobular septal thickening and patchy areas resembling a ground-glass appearance.[quizlet.com] Large areas of ground-glass appearance in bilateral lung fields with interstitial septal thickening consistent with PCP were seen on a high-resolution computed tomography[atmph.org]

  • Respiratory Bronchiolitis Interstitial Lung Disease

    The onset is usually insidious with exertional dyspnea and persistent cough, which may be non-productive, developing over a course of weeks or months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On HRCT, there is a ground glass appearance, being most prominent in the lower fields and periphery and are sometimes patchy and sometimes homogeneous.[pulmonary-fibrosis.net] […] common in the absence of obvious incentives may also exist, such as PaO2 Symptom Respiratory bronchiolitis Interstitial lung disease Symptoms Common symptoms Fatigue dry cough[healthfrom.com]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    The urge to cough cannot be relieved by coughing [ 9 ].[err.ersjournals.com] Ground glass infiltrates can occupy no more than scant, limited areas of the images.[doi.org] Cough was more prevalent during wakefulness with a median cough-index of 14.8/h (IQR 10.9, 16.8) and 1.6/h (IQR 1.3-2.8) during sleep, p   0.0039.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bronchiolitis Obliterans

    Affected people may experience a dry cough, shortness of breath, and/or wheezing.[web.archive.org] This appears with a “ground-glass” haziness that is characteristic for the disease. The content above is only an excerpt.[accessscience.com] The chest x-ray shows diffuse nonspecific alveolar or "ground glass" densities.[healthcentral.com]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

  • Q Fever

    The most frequent clinical manifestation of acute form is a self-limited febrile illness which is associated with severe headache, muscle ache, arthralgia and cough.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The main complaints were fever, cough and dyspnea. While the white cell blood count was in the normal range in most of the patients, the CRP value was markedly elevated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The main symptoms were headache (100%), cough (77%) and fever (69%). A trend to a paucisymptomatic illness was observed in women.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Extrinsic Allergic Alveolitis

    Patients with chronic HP often describe chronic symptoms, such as shortness of breath or cough, that have gotten worse.[ucsfhealth.org] Note the ground-glass appearance and small nodules. – Lung function tests : persistent restrictive changes ( FVC and FEV1, FEV1:FVC normal or increased) – Bronchoalveolar[clumsylostmedicalstudent.wordpress.com] A case of hot tub lung in a 48-year-old woman with dyspnea and dry cough.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Otitis Media

    Preventing whooping cough Whooping cough can be prevented by vaccination.[nps.org.au] The normal TM is translucent, pearly gray, and has a ground-glass appearance ( Fig 2A ). Specific landmarks can be visualized.[doi.org] (acute cough, bronchiolitis, and croup) We included six trials of acute cough, 30 croup, 31 32 33 or bronchiolitis, 34 35 providing data on 700 children.[doi.org]

  • Cryptogenic Organizing Pneumonia

    CONCLUSION: Common symptoms included cough and dyspnea, while the main radiological presentation of COP was consolidation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ground glass appearance or hazy opacities associated with the consolidation are detected in most patients.[en.wikipedia.org] A ground glass appearance is also common. Bronchial carcinoma is an important differential diagnosis.[pulmonary-fibrosis.net]
