2,272 Possible Causes for Fever, Pneumothorax

  • Pharyngitis

    Chest X-ray revealed left side pneumothorax, air-fluid level and near-complete collapse of the left lung with displacement of the heart and trachea to the right.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Most of these children have undergone workup(s) for sepsis performed by their pediatricians because of the associated high fever.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It suggests that periodic fever with aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis, and cervical adenitis syndrome may have a certain monogenetic background.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumonia

    Pneumothorax occasionally develops in patients with interstitial pneumonia (IP) and is often intractable.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome (SFTS) was first reported in China in 2011.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A week later, she was again admitted with fever.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    We also assessed the cumulative incidence and the risk factors for pneumothorax. Of the 84 patients, 17 (20.2%) developed pneumothorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 57-year-old man, who had been diagnosed with IPF in September 2008, was admitted to our hospital in December 2009 because of aggravation of dyspnea and fever two days after[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient described in the present case study was a 65-yr-old male who presented with exertional dyspnoea and fever of 2 weeks' duration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Dyspnea (shortness of breath 20 ) that may be severe Respiratory failure Pneumonia Cor pulmonale (enlargement and weakness of the right heart ventricle due to lung disease) Pneumothorax[articles.mercola.com] Systemic Sometimes there can be a slight fever and chills, as in flu like symptoms.[symptoma.com] […] highly contagious bacterial respiratory illness with several potentially severe complications, including dehydration, hypoxia, encephalopathy, syncope, seizures, pneumonia, pneumothorax[journals.lww.com]

  • Lung Abscess

    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] […] development were: a younger age (p 0.003), road traffic accidents admission (p 0.017), head injury (p 0.002), lower Glasgow Coma Scale (p 0.009), blunt chest trauma (p 0.01) pneumothorax[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atelectasis

    When there is no apparent cause, the condition is known as spontaneous pneumothorax .[nm.org] It is a common misconception that atelectasis causes fever.[en.wikipedia.org] A 12-year-old boy presented to our clinic with recurrent lower respiratory tract symptoms that are wheezing, cough, bronchopneumonia, and fever and with a diagnosis of bacterial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumoperitoneum

    Catamenial pneumothorax (CP) is considered to be an extremely rare entity, characterized by recurrent pneumothorax occurring between the day before and within 72 hours after[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient presented with chronic pain abdomen and fever which later evolved to acute abdomen during the course of hospital stay.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These cases show two different possibilities of localisation of intra-abdominal free air associated with traumatic pneumothorax.[pmj.bmj.com]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    The patient developed a large left-sided iatrogenic pneumothorax, which recurred and failed to resolve despite the successful insertion of both Seldinger and surgical chest[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Post-operative fever is common following emergency surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Unlike the common PLCH cases, this PLCH case has cervical lymph node involvement and right pneumothorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Esophageal Perforation

    Chest radiography and computed tomography (CT) revealed a massive left pleural effusion and left tension pneumothorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On physical examination, general weakness, chest pain, odynophagia, and a fever up to 38.9 C were found.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] : extraluminal gas locules in the mediastinum or abdominal cavity, adjacent to the oesophagus are highly suggestive 2,4 pleural or mediastinal fluid pneumomediastinum or pneumothorax[radiopaedia.org]

  • Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis

    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] The symptoms were long-lasting dry cough, fever and physical deterioration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We attribute the fever in our patient to secondary infection with MTB.[academic.oup.com]
