602 Possible Causes for Fever, Pneumothorax, Rales

  • Pleurisy

    A lung disease or acute lung injury can cause a pneumothorax. Some lung procedures also can cause a pneumothorax.[] A preliminary physical examination to determine restriction to chest movements, pleural rub, breath sounds, rales, and egophony, third heart sound (S3), blood pressure, pulse[] The onset of pleurisy was accompanied by acute fever.[]

  • Atypical Pneumonia

    […] standard method of diagnosing pneumonia; however, lung ultrasonography has the potential to more accurately and efficiently diagnose pneumonia, as well as pleural effusions, pneumothorax[] As pneumonia progresses, rales appear in the chest, C. penumoniae is known to be associated with hyper-reactive airway.[] The differential diagnoses were pulmonary TB and dengue fever.[]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Thus, when refractory pneumothorax in a patient with severe pulmonary dysfunction fails to improve through routine therapy, the treatment of pneumothorax by VATS based on[] Examination of the lungs may reveal bilateral rales. Rales may not be present despite widespread involvement.[] A 54-year-old woman presented with fever, hypotension, and pancytopenia, with peripheral smear diagnostic of ehrlichiosis.[]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    […] 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[] A detailed physical exam will identify rales in most patients, dullness on percussion (along with other signs of empyema) and splinting due to pain in about half of patients[] With adequate antipneumococcal therapy and/or chest tube drainage, all of the patients recovered completely; however, clinical improvement was prolonged: fever lasted 9 to[]

  • Staphylococcal Pneumonia

    The delayed and subacute/chronic nature of the tension pneumothorax is unusual.[] Early diminished breath sounds, scattered rales, and rhonchi are commonly heard over the affected lung.[] 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.[]

  • Bronchioloalveolar Carcinoma

    Lobar or segmental atelectasis rarely occurs, although intraairway spread can create a check valve obstruction, causing localized hyperinflation and pneumothorax.[] On referral to our hospital, he was cachectic, with scleral icterus, asterixis, fetor hepaticus, and rales in the base of the right lung.[] The most frequent symptoms and signs are cough, sputum, shortness of breath, weight loss, hemoptysis, and fever. Bronchorrhea is unusual and a late manifestation.[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Unlike the common PLCH cases, this PLCH case has cervical lymph node involvement and right pneumothorax.[] On examination he is thin, appears comfortable, and has faint rales in the right middle lung zone. Figure 1.[] Post-operative fever is common following emergency surgery.[]

  • Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia

    Effect of prophylactic use of aerosolized pentamidine Redistribution of infection to upper lobes Complications Cystic lung disease Central location to cysts Spontaneous pneumothorax[] Auscultation may not yield any remarkable findings, but dry rales may be heard.[] The patient presented with a fever of unknown origin.[]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    No complications such as a pneumothorax or bleeding occurred.[] A 14-year-old Korean boy was admitted with cough, hemoptysis, and fever. A chest X-ray showed a solitary pulmonary mass and pneumonitis.[] There was only 1 important TBNA complication, which was a small pneumothorax.[]

  • Small-Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    Usually computed tomographic (CT) guidance is used for the procedure, thus enabling needle placement and permitting evaluation of complications such as pneumothorax and bleeding[] Case of a 33-year-old female with AIDS who presented with fevers, chills, lower back pain and a large right hilar mass.[] TTNA, however, is more prone to inducing pneumothorax compared to standard bronchoscopy.[]
