73 Possible Causes for 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.[] 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[]

  • 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[]

  • Pyopneumothorax

    Five patients developed pleural empyema due to Clostridium perfringens in the absence of penetration of the thorax; two of the patients presented with pyopneumothorax.[] Pyopneumothorax could arise as a progression of either underlying hydropneumothorax or empyema.[] The progression to pyopneumothorax under tension is extremely rare. We present a case of tension pyopneumothorax in a child.[]

  • Lung Abscess

    Left tension pyopneumothorax was diagnosed, and he received left lower lobectomy after pleural drainage.[] […] with pleural empyema.[] If infected tissue involves visceral pleura, it will develop pyopneumothorax or pleural empyema ( 3 ).[]

  • 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[] She subsequently developed life-threatening conditions including bilateral empyema with respiratory failure, purulent pericarditis, and multiple organ failure leading to death[]

  • 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[] Treatment and prognosis Complications The major complication associated with aspiration is pulmonary infection: segmental or lobar pneumonia bronchopneumonia lung abscess empyema[]

  • Gram-Negative Pneumonia

    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.[] No specific roentgenographic features could be attributed to the remaining pathogens, with the exception of massive empyema and lobar consolidation in Bacteroides infection[]

  • Staphylococcus Aureus Infection

    Afterwards, he developed thrombosis, endocarditis and empyema thoracis. He received further intravenous antibiotics and proper drainages for his conditions.[] The complications included bilateral multilobular infiltrates, pneumatocoeles, recurrent pneumothoraces, pleural effusion, empyema, lung abscess and diaphragmatic paralysis[] Empyema is caused by extension of local pneumonia.[]

  • Pleural Effusion

    Diagnostic accuracy for CPPE/empyema using two parameters.[] […] 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[] Kho Pyopneumothorax: a rare complication of Wegener's granulomatosis Eur J Respir Dis, 67 (1995), pp. 223-227 [110] J. Lanham, K. Elkon, C. Pusey, G.R.[]

  • Gallbladder Empyema

    Imaging studies, however, are the cornerstone in visualizing gallbladder empyema and establishing a firm diagnosis.[] […] 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[] The purpose of this study was to determine the optimal time for LC in gallbladder empyema.[]
