71 Possible Causes for Focal Atelectasis

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    Braz J Med Biol Res, January 2005, Volume 38 (1) 11-15 (Short Communication) Prevalence of D F508, G551D, G542X, and R553X mutations among cystic fibrosis patients in the North of Brazil F.G. de Araújo 1, F.C. Novaes 1, N.P.C. dos Santos 1, V.C. Martins 2, S.M. de Souza 2, S.E.B. dos Santos 1 and A.K.C. Ribeiro-dos-Santos 1[…][]

  • Mucoid Impaction of the Bronchus

    Life Sci. 1985 Jun 17;36(24):2287-93. Abstract Glycosaminoglycans were isolated from mucus of patients with chronic bronchitis and mucoid impaction of the bronchus, whose contents were approximately 56 mumoles and 80 mumoles of hexosamine per g of dry weight of mucus respectively. Electrophoretic and chemical[…][]

  • Acute Respiratory Infection

    Admission CXR findings were categorized as: 1 normal; 2 patchy atelectasis and/or hyperinflation and/or bronchial wall thickening; 3 focal consolidation; 4 multifocal consolidation[]

  • Atelectasis

    RESULTS: Sixty of the 80 patients with signs of NPA on lung ultrasound also had signs of NPA on CXR (termed focal-type atelectasis), and the other 20 patients had signs of[] […] pulmonary MIBG uptake corresponding to atelectasis.[] […] knowledge, there is one published case of MIBG radiotracer uptake in the lung correlating with pneumonia; however, there are no reported cases to date in the literature of focal[]

  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection

    Air may be trapped distal to the sites of occlusion, causing the characteristic hyperinflation of bronchiolitis, which, when absorbed, results in multiple areas of focal atelectasis[]

  • Otitis Media

    […] or atrophy, accumulation of keratin, and focal signs of infection such as granulations or aural polyp.[] atelectasis of the tympanic membrane, and cholesteatoma.[] […] of the tympanic membrane can be performed with a handheld pneumatic otoscope to search for abnormalities such as retraction pockets, ossicular erosion, areas of atelectasis[]

  • Influenza Pneumonia

    […] plasma cells Swelling and increased mucus production impair bronchociliary elevator, and may lead to secondary bacterial infection; small airways may become occluded causing focal[] atelectasis; in severe disease, this is more widespread with distal airways plugged by fibrinopurulent debris If process is prolonged, obliterative bronchiolitis with irreversible[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    […] pneumonitis Diffuse parenchymal lung disease (pulmonary fibrosis) P-D2-S2 (strong: level B) Regarding B-lines, focal multiple B-lines may be present in a normal lung, and a focal[] (localized) sonographic pattern of interstitial syndrome may be seen in the presence of any of the following: Pneumonia and pneumonitis Atelectasis Pulmonary contusion Pulmonary[]

  • Nosocomial Pneumonia

    ASSESSMENT Clinical focal chest signs purulent sputum fever Laboratory inflammatory marker elevation positive cultures (sputum or blood) 4 fold increase in antibody titres[] […] usually represents colonisation only, and does not itself justify a diagnosis of HAP Most postoperative patients with shadowing on chest X-ray do not have pneumonia, they have atelectasis[]

  • Atypical Pneumonia

    Subsegmental and sometimes segmental atelectasis from small airway obstruction may occur.[] CT Atypical pneumonia has a pattern of focal ground-glass opacity in a lobular distribution. Involvement is often diffuse and bilateral 9 .[]
