1,815 Possible Causes for Drug-induced Hemorrhagic Disorder, Empyema, Retrosternal Chest Pain

  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    Aside from the drainage of empyemas, the primary therapy for aspiration pneumonia involves antimicrobial agents.[] - Chapter 64: Depositional Diseases of the Lungs -- Part 6:Drug-Induced Lung Diseases -- Chapter 65: Pulmonary Toxicity Related to Chemotherapeutic Agents -- Chapter 66: Drug-Induced[] Chest Tube Placement Chest tube placement may be employed to drain a complicated pleural effusion or an empyema.[]

  • Mallory-Weiss Syndrome

    Shock and empyema are more frequent after perforation of the thoracic oesophagus than after perforation of the cervical oesophagus.[] Drug-Induced gastrointestinal disorders. Medscape Pharmacotherapy 2002;4(1). 15. Fennerty MB, Johnson DA.[] CLINICAL FEATURESCLINICAL FEATURES  Retrosternal painRetrosternal pain  Epigastric painEpigastric pain  RegurgitationRegurgitation  Occult blood in stoolsOccult blood[]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    All 3 patients were 2 years old, had an empyema complicating pneumococcal pneumonia, and developed renal failure with oliguria and required peritoneal dialysis for a period[] Nonetheless, pneumococcal infection is one of the most common causes of pediatric empyema.[] She subsequently developed life-threatening conditions including bilateral empyema with respiratory failure, purulent pericarditis, and multiple organ failure leading to death[]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    Empiric antibiotics for bacterial pneumonias complicated by empyema should include anaerobic coverage, as anaerobic bacteria are often cultured from empyemas. [48] Go to Parapneumonic[] (which is present in fewer than 1% of pneumonia hospitalizations) was greatly outweighed by the reduction in the incidence of hospitalizations for pneumonia, empyema accounts[] Complications Complications of bacterial pneumonia can include dilatation of bronchi (bronchiectasis), collection of pus in the lung tissue (abscess) or pleural space (empyema[]

  • Staphylococcal Pneumonia

    There were seven deaths, five in patients with empyema and two in patients without this complication.[] Initial chest radiographs revealed empyema, pleural effusion, or pyopneumothorax in 67 patients.[] In contrast, the lung empyema strain produced moderate levels of PVL, but negligible amounts of α-toxin, and triggered limited tissue damage. α-toxin had a direct damaging[]

  • Esophageal Perforation

    Esophageal stenting and drainage of empyema were unsuccessful.[] Patients complain of throat or retrosternal chest pain, which is sudden onset.[] The patient received empirical antibiotic therapy initially; however, esophageal perforation with mediastinitis and empyema developed after admission.[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Additional targeted therapies may be necessary in the setting of empyema, mediastinal complications or hemoptysis.[] There are also high probabilities of the patient developing TB Empyema if the disease spreads to the pleural area.[] - tuberculous empyema fibrothorax bronchopleural fistula The imaging differential is dependent on the type and pattern of infection; consider: differential of miliary pulmonary[]

  • Hemothorax

    Abstract We describe the use of an electric trigger-controlled suction-lavage device for the evacuation of empyema or clotted hemothorax.[] Three patients developed empyema, and 19 demonstrated retained blood; there was no difference between SEPS and control patients.[] Retained hemothorax puts patients at risk for development of empyema.[]

  • Legionnaires' Disease

    The differential diagnosis of Legionnaires disease includes: Acute respiratory distress syndrome Aspiration pneumonia Bacterial pneumonia Bronchitis Empyema Gastroenteritis[] , and others; of these only pleural empyema has been reported in more than a handful of cases (McClelland et al ., 2004).[] Examples of the latter type include pleural empyema, purulent pericarditis, vascular graft infections, renal and brain abscesses, purulent peritonitis, bowel abscesses, pyarthrosis[]

  • Suppurative Pericarditis

    Approximately 5-10% of parapneumonic effusions will develop into empyema. Empyema is more common in men, with a male to female ratio of 2:1.[] The common clinical presentation involves; pyrexia, retrosternal chest pain and breathlessness.[] chest pain, usually described as sharp or stabbing.[]
