31 Possible Causes for Extrinsic Allergic Alveolitis, Rales, Reversible Airway Obstruction

  • Asthma

    Bilateral crepitant rales and sibilant rhochi were also detected. In his thoracic computerized tomography, the ground glass areas were noted in both lungs.[] Asthma is a relatively common condition that is characterized by at least partially reversible inflammation of the airways and reversible airway obstruction due to airway[] Asthma is a chronic disorder of the airways that is characterized by reversible airflow obstruction and airway inflammation, persistent airway hyperreactivity, and airway[]

  • Extrinsic Allergic Alveolitis

    Your provider may hear abnormal lung sounds called crackles (rales) when listening to your chest with a stethoscope.[] In extrinsic allergic alveolitis as well as in sarcoidosis these lymphocytes are mainly T lymphocytes.[] […] and dyspnea May begin noticing weight loss Chronic (months after continuous exposure) Insidious onset of fatigue, productive cough, progressive dyspnea, cyanosis Bilateral rales[]

  • Byssinosis

    They are reversible in the early stages, but prolonged exposure results in chronic airway obstruction, bronchitis, and emphysema with fibrosis, leading to respiratory failure[] Alveolitis Also known as: Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis (HP) or Extrinsic Allergic alveolitis (EAA) Other names include: farmers lungfarmers lung bagassosisbagassosis pigeon[] Hypersensitivity pneumonitis, also known as extrinsic allergic alveolitis, is an immunologically mediated inflammatory disease of the lung involving the terminal airways.[]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Chest auscultation revealed decreased breath sounds without rales.[] OBJECTIVE: Introduction: Out of all respiratory diseases COPD is the leading cause of death and is characterized with diffuse non-reversible airway obstruction.[] Other patients may present acutely with breathlessness due to extrinsic allergic alveolitis, sarcoidosis or other types of parenchymal lung disorders.[]

  • Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis

    Focal inspiratory rales suggestive of a pneumonia or area of bronchiectasis may raise one's suspicion and lead to chest radiography.[] […] that is at least partially reversible.[] A few cases of extrinsic allergic alveolitis due to Aspergillus fumigatus have previously been reported in compost workers.[]

  • Respiratory Bronchiolitis Interstitial Lung Disease

    Bibasilar inspiratory crackles or rales are usually heard on auscultation. Treatment is based on the underlying cause.[] A reversible cause of airway obstruction associated with airway neutrophils and neutrophil products. Am Rev Respir Dis 1989; 140 : 483–492. 36 Colby T, Myers J.[] .: Robbins and Cotran Pathologic Basis of Disease, 8th Edition, 2009 Intraalveolar reaction: DIP, pulmonary alveolar proteinosis, infection, extrinsic allergic alveolitis,[]

  • Pneumoconiosis

(2,4,5,7,8) The clinical profile of giant cell pneumonia includes dyspnea on exertion, hypoxemia, cough, weight loss, fatigue, wheezing and rales[] Farming and the prevalence of non-reversible airways obstruction: results from a population-based study. Am J Ind Med 50:421-426 17497693.[] Interstitial diseases (silicosis and extrinsic allergic alveolitis) caused by the exposure to airborne contaminants during the manufacture of dental prostheses are classified[]

  • Crack Lung

    Some of the symptoms include Dyspnea at rest Exertional cyanosis Lung signs/abnormality Painful cough Pulmonary Crackles Rales Rales,dry Rhonchi/coarse rales Shortness of[] In one study of pulmonary function abnormalities in patients with HIV receiving ARVT, univariate analysis demonstrated that ARVT is a risk factor for airway obstruction unresponsive[] pneumonitis due to other organic dusts J67.9 Hypersensitivity pneumonitis due to unspecified organic dust J68 Respiratory conditions due to inhalation of chemicals, gases[]

  • Lymphocytic Interstitial Pneumonia

    During the physical examination, chest auscultation can reveal rales and clubbing.[] A reversible cause of airway obstruction associated with airway neutrophils and neutrophil products. Am Rev Respir Dis 1989; 140 : 483–492. 36 Colby T, Myers J.[] allergic alveolitis.[]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Similar to the sound heard when gently separating the joined strip of velcro on the blood pressure cuff (or jogging shoes), fine crackles have been coined “velcro” rales by[] Assessing the reversibility of airway obstruction. Chest 1998 ; 114 : 1607 –1612. Pellegrino R, Brusasco V.[] After thorough investigation, including histological examination of lung biopsies obtained by thoracoscopy, a diagnosis of chronic extrinsic allergic alveolitis was made.[]
