37 Possible Causes for Cough, Purulent Sputum, Pyopneumothorax

  • Lung Abscess

    Left tension pyopneumothorax was diagnosed, and he received left lower lobectomy after pleural drainage.[] As the abscess is formed, large amounts of foul purulent or bloody sputum are discharged, which may form an upper frothy layer, a middle layer of thin mucus and a thick purulent[] Cough, fever with shivering, and night sweats are often present.[]

  • Pneumonia

    Pyopneumothorax - eg, following rupture of a staphylococcal lung abscess in the pleural cavity. Deep vein thrombosis.[] Cough is often distressing for patients with pneumonia. Accordingly they often use over-the-counter (OTC) cough medications (mucolytics or cough suppressants).[] The possible complications of percutaneous drainage catheters include pneumothorax, pyopneumothorax, and bronchopleural fistula. 50 CONCLUSION The role of interventional radiology[]

  • Staphylococcal Pneumonia

    Rupture of a small subpleural abscess may result in pyopneumothorax, which may erode into a bronchus, producing a bronchopleural fistula.[] CASE 50 Clinical Presentation 26-year-old man with fever, cough productive of purulent sputum, and hemoptysis Radiologic Findings PA ( Fig. 50.1A ) and lateral ( Fig. 50.1B[] He had presented with cough for one month and respiratory difficulty for one-week duration and history of bilious vomiting two days prior to admission.[]

  • Pyopneumothorax

    Tension pyopneumothorax is a rare complication of pneumonia and subpleural abscess eroding into the pleural space.[] Given the persistence of purulent sputum and lung expansion failure, surgical treatment was performed.[] We report an unusual complication of chronic foreign body aspiration--pyopneumothorax--in a 52-year-old patient presenting with productive cough and intermittent fever for[]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    Pneumothorax, pneumatocele, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), pulmonary abscess, bronchopleural fistula, bilateral hemorrhagic pleural effusion and pyopneumothorax[] It produces fever, leukocytosis, purulent sputum, and an infiltrate visible on a radiograph.[] The aspiration pneumonia probably had multifactorial etiology: dysphagia, abnormal cough reflex, colonization of the oropharynx by virulent bacteria, etc.[]

  • Bronchiectasis

    Complications of Bronchiectasis: Recurrent pneumonia Haemoptysis Brain abscess Empyema Pyopneumothorax Pulmonary insufficiency Cor-pulmonale Amyloidosis Management and treatment[] sputum production, and airway dilation that characterize this disease.[] Some patients however have ongoing non-productive cough symptoms suggesting a cough sensitisation syndrome.[]

  • Empyema

    In pyopneumothorax an air-fluid level is observed.[] Most patients with empyema present with a clinical picture of cough, fever, purulent sputum, shortness of breath, and chest pain.[] A 9-year-old girl from black ethnic origin presented with a history of fever, cough, loss of weight and right-sided chest wall pain for 2 weeks.[]

  • Atypical Pneumonia

    Pyopneumothorax - eg, following rupture of a staphylococcal lung abscess in the pleural cavity. Deep vein thrombosis.[] The clinical picture was remarkable as the patient presented with cough and purulent sputum production, but otherwise no classical signs of pneumonia.[] Children and adults who are infected often show symptoms resembling those of a cold or flu, such as coughing, sneezing, and a mild fever.[]
