776 Possible Causes for Hemoptysis, Pneumothorax

  • Pneumonia

    Pneumothorax occasionally develops in patients with interstitial pneumonia (IP) and is often intractable.[] This report is of a fatal case of HSV pneumonia associated with bilateral pneumothorax and pneumomediastinum.[] Pneumothorax. Pyopneumothorax - eg, following rupture of a staphylococcal lung abscess in the pleural cavity. Deep vein thrombosis.[]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    […] more common in middle-aged men, possibly related to collagen vascular disease, with positive 'rheumatoid' serology Clinical Aggressive–rapid onset of dyspnea, orthopnea, hemoptysis[] We also assessed the cumulative incidence and the risk factors for pneumothorax. Of the 84 patients, 17 (20.2%) developed pneumothorax.[] In the present case, the large right pneumothorax was initially thought to be associated with IPF because pneumothorax is common in patients with IPF.[]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    May see hemoptysis and/or systemic signs such as weight loss or poor appetite. CT of chest or chest radiograph may detect lesion. Bronchoscopy may find bronchial lesion.[] 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[] […] highly contagious bacterial respiratory illness with several potentially severe complications, including dehydration, hypoxia, encephalopathy, syncope, seizures, pneumonia, pneumothorax[]

  • Lung Abscess

    Clinicians should consider the possibility of PAA/PAP in the differential diagnosis of hemoptysis during the treatment of patients with 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.[] There was one major complication, a pneumothorax. Follow-up was until tube removal or death in 100% of patients.[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Massive hemoptysis is a life-threatening complication of 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[] Unlike the common PLCH cases, this PLCH case has cervical lymph node involvement and right pneumothorax.[]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    A 14-year-old Korean boy was admitted with cough, hemoptysis, and fever. A chest X-ray showed a solitary pulmonary mass and pneumonitis.[] No complications such as a pneumothorax or bleeding occurred.[] On admission, the patient presented with weight loss, cough and hemoptysis.[]

  • Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis

    Also hemoptysis was found to be the independent factor that can predict treatment failure.[] Active pleural drainage of the pneumothorax was unsuccessful and after two months, surgical suture of the lung was performed under general anaesthesia.[] […] asymptomatic • 1/3: persistent dry cough progressive dyspnoea fatigue,malaise,weight loss,failure to thrive intermittent low grade fever,night sweats pleuritic chest pain,hemoptysis[]

  • Pulmonary Lymphangioleiomyomatosis

    We describe a patient presenting with hemoptysis post-LTx for PLAM.[] Pneumothorax is almost always found on the initial chest radiograph.[] The diagnosis of lymphangioleiomyomatosis was established in a 35-year-old woman with hemoptysis, mild cough, and dyspnea based on histologic review of results of a transbronchial[]

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    The bronchial arteries are the culprit vessels in over 90% of cases of hemoptysis.[] Pneumothorax is a serious but common complication in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF).[] Pneumothorax can cause chest pain and breathlessness. Respiratory failure. Over time, cystic fibrosis can damage lung tissue so badly that it no longer works.[]

  • Chronic Pulmonary Coccidioidomycosis

    About one-third of the patients with cavities may experience hemoptysis (coughing blood). The hemoptysis is often recurrent but generally not life-threatening .[] An air-fluid level in the pleural space is a clue that the process is not a spontaneous pneumothorax. In the past, these cavities often were surgically resected.[] Hemoptysis or the threat of rupture into the pleural space occasionally necessitates surgery.[]
