885 Possible Causes for Fever, Hemoptysis, Pneumothorax

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    Chest pain due to pleural involvement is common, as is hemoptysis, which is characteristically “rusty”, since it is derived from altered blood in alveolar spaces.[histopathology-india.net] […] production of coagulase Produces its pathologic reaction in the conducting airways Imaging Rapid spread through the lungs Empyema, especially in children No air bronchogram Pneumothorax[learningradiology.com] Common symptoms of pneumococcal pneumonia include fever and chills, cough, hyperventilation, difficulty breathing and chest pain.[symptoma.com]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Symptoms may include cough, dyspnea, hemoptysis and chest pain and the diagnosis is made using clinical, imaging and histopathologic criteria.[symptoma.com] No complications such as a pneumothorax or bleeding occurred.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 14-year-old Korean boy was admitted with cough, hemoptysis, and fever. A chest X-ray showed a solitary pulmonary mass and pneumonitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Massive hemoptysis is a life-threatening complication of pulmonary tuberculosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Unlike the common PLCH cases, this PLCH case has cervical lymph node involvement and right pneumothorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Post-operative fever is common following emergency surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lung Abscess

    Clinicians should consider the possibility of PAA/PAP in the differential diagnosis of hemoptysis during the treatment of patients with lung abscess.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a case of acute empyema with intractable pneumothorax associated with ruptured lung abscess caused by Mycobacterium avium in an immunocompromised patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 59 year old man presented to our hospital with a 1 month history of cough and low grade fever progressing to high grade fever for 1 week.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Small-Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    The clinical presentation encompasses cough, hemoptysis, chest pain, and systemic signs of weight loss and fatigue in patients who reached the later stages of the disease.[symptoma.com] Usually computed tomographic (CT) guidance is used for the procedure, thus enabling needle placement and permitting evaluation of complications such as pneumothorax and bleeding[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Case of a 33-year-old female with AIDS who presented with fevers, chills, lower back pain and a large right hilar mass.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bronchiectasis

    After treatment, the patient no longer had hemoptysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Surgery is indicated in unsuccessful medical treatment and complications of bronchiectasis e.g. haemoptysis, lung abscess, lung masses and pneumothorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 21-year-old woman presented to our hospital with a 9-day history of productive cough and fever. Bronchiectasis after Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis

    The only variable capable of predicting treatment failure was the history of hemoptysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Active pleural drainage of the pneumothorax was unsuccessful and after two months, surgical suture of the lung was performed under general anaesthesia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Common presenting features include dyspnea, cough, low-grade fever, inspiratory crackles, and digital clubbing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mycoplasma Pneumonia

    She had a dual infection with dengue hemorrhagic fever with unusual manifestations; liver failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] fever or 3 days (10.01 /- 11.74 pg/mL, p 0.05).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The diagnosis is suspected when the patient presents with symptoms suggesting primary atypical pneumonia including cough, fever, chills, headache, and malaise in association[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    We describe such a case, which involved a 70-year-old man who presented with chest pain, hemoptysis, and bilateral pulmonary infiltrates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She developed spontaneous right-sided pneumothorax. Autopsy, revealed rupture of cavitary pulmonary infarction to be the cause of the pneumothorax, a rare finding.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of PE-related fever are similar to postoperative fever.[circ.ahajournals.org]

  • Pulmonary Histoplasmosis

    […] symptoms symptoms manifest for up to two weeks after exposure fever, malaise, headache, myalgia, abdominal pain dyspnea can manifest if there is diffuse involvement a cough and hemoptysis[radiopaedia.org] African immune-competent boy with a history of smear-positive tuberculosis and a two-year history of rock cutting presented to our hospital with chronic productive cough, fever[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com] […] probability of developing chronic cavitary histoplasmosis.
