26 Possible Causes for Dyspnea at Rest, Empyema, Pyopneumothorax

  • Staphylococcal Pneumonia

    There were seven deaths, five in patients with empyema and two in patients without this complication.[] Rupture of a small subpleural abscess may result in pyopneumothorax, which may erode into a bronchus, producing a bronchopleural fistula.[] Initial chest radiographs revealed empyema, pleural effusion, or pyopneumothorax in 67 patients.[]

  • Empyema

    An empyema is a collection of pus within an anatomical cavity. Usually, the term refers to empyema thoracis which is the collection of pus in the pleural space.[] […] fistula 2016 2017 2018 2019 Billable/Specific Code Applicable To Abscess of pleura Abscess of thorax Empyema (chest) (lung) (pleura) Fibrinopurulent pleurisy Purulent pleurisy Pyopneumothorax[] […] erythematosus (SLE) rheumatoid arthritis Dressler syndrome (post myocardial infarction) hiatus hernia (AP film) lung abscess : see empyema vs lung abscess cavitating lung lesion pyopneumothorax[]

  • 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[] […] coagulase Produces its pathologic reaction in the conducting airways Imaging Rapid spread through the lungs Empyema, especially in children No air bronchogram Pneumothorax Pyopneumothorax[] Nonetheless, pneumococcal infection is one of the most common causes of pediatric empyema.[]

  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    Aside from the drainage of empyemas, the primary therapy for aspiration pneumonia involves antimicrobial agents.[] Pneumothorax, pneumatocele, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), pulmonary abscess, bronchopleural fistula, bilateral hemorrhagic pleural effusion and pyopneumothorax[] Chest Tube Placement Chest tube placement may be employed to drain a complicated pleural effusion or an empyema.[]

  • Gram-Negative Pneumonia

    No specific roentgenographic features could be attributed to the remaining pathogens, with the exception of massive empyema and lobar consolidation in Bacteroides infection[] Pyopneumothorax - eg, following rupture of a staphylococcal lung abscess in the pleural cavity. Deep vein thrombosis.[] An associated empyema was noted in six cases. Specimens for culture were obtained through percutaneous transtracheal aspiration.[]

  • Pleural Effusion

    Diagnostic accuracy for CPPE/empyema using two parameters.[] He additionally complained of night sweats over the past few days, and dyspnea on exertion.[] […] due to massive exudation of leukocytes and fibrinoid detritus to the pleural space or necrosis of the rheumatoid nodules that, by means of bronchopleural fistula, cause pyopneumothorax[]

  • Pneumonia

    […] of empyema.[] Pyopneumothorax - eg, following rupture of a staphylococcal lung abscess in the pleural cavity. Deep vein thrombosis.[] Image-guided percutaneous drainage of thoracic empyema: can sonography predict the outcome?.[]

  • Chronic Pulmonary Coccidioidomycosis

    […] coccidioidomycosis includes clinical entities as severe and persistent pneumonia, progressive primary coccidioidomycosis, fibrocavitary coccidioidomycosis, cavities, and empyema[] […] at rest, fever, and weight loss. 1 Patients with disseminated pulmonary disease may present with profound hypoxemia, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and respiratory[] This finding is suggestive of coccidioidal infection. [19] A subpleural cavity may break down into the pleural cavity, causing a pneumothorax, pyopneumothorax, or bronchopleural[]

  • Chylothorax

    In conclusion, TB-chylothorax may develop without obvious mediastinal lymphadenopathy and be associated with tubercular empyema alone.[] Traitement des pyothorax et pyopneumothorax d’origine infectieuse d’évolution chronique par drainage-lavage à la polyvinylpyrrolidone iodée.[] It is more commonly a reactive effusion, but it also may be caused by hemothorax, empyema or, less commonly, a chylothorax.[]

  • Gangrene and Necrosis of the Lung

    Left-side pleural empyema Pleural empyema Pleural empyema Pleural empyema Pleural empyema Variants of clinical course and complications The clinic of a focal pleural empyema[] Most children recover completely with antibiotic therapy and chest tube drainage of empyema.[] The most common development is pyopneumothorax and pulmonary hemorrhage. Pneumopericarditis is a rare but extremely dangerous complication of lung abscess.[]
