681 Possible Causes for Fever, Lung Abscess, Pneumothorax

  • Atelectasis

    Compressive atelectasis Something has put direct pressure on the lung, collapsing the alveoli.[derangedphysiology.com] When there is no apparent cause, the condition is known as spontaneous pneumothorax.[nm.org] Using chi 2 analysis, no association could be found between fever and amount of atelectasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

  • Lung Abscess

    […] or follows rupture of extrapulmonary abscess into lung.[en.wikipedia.org] 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]

D.[link.springer.com] The delayed and subacute/chronic nature of the tension pneumothorax is unusual.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fever and signs of pleural effusion and respiratory distress were common in primary disease while fever and a toxic appearance were frequent with disseminated illness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    No complications such as a pneumothorax or bleeding occurred.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She had previously been successfully treated for squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix and now four years later, presented with a right lower lobe lung abscess.[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]

  • Bronchiectasis

    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] Other complications that can arise from bronchiectasis include recurrent pneumonia, lung abscesses, and pneumothorax, the leakage of air into the pleural space.[britannica.com]

  • Pyopneumothorax

    Once tension pyopneumothorax has developed from lung abscess, emergent lobectomy may be a useful option to prevent lethal aspiration pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pneumothorax alone, or accompanied by serous fluid, or by pus, is infrequent enough in any single clinic to be of sufficient interest to study and report.[jamanetwork.com] Patients may present with pleuritic chest pain, severe cough and dyspnea, whilst also manifesting certain nonspecific symptoms such as fever, loss of appetite, loss of weight[symptoma.com]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    Chest film simulated a thin wall lung abscess. The clinical picture suggested aseptic cavitation, which was confirmed by 99mTc-MAA lung scan.[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]
