(1990).[link.springer.com] Necrosis of pulmonary parenchyma can be seen in chronic infections such as tuberculosis and in malignant tumors of the lung.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Silicotuberculosis

    It is concluded that this is an effective means of treatment for pulmonary tuberculosis in patients with silicosis as well as in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis only,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe a cascade of complications-active pulmonary tuberculosis despite recent isoniazid prophylactic therapy, non-tuberculous mycobacterial disease, chronic airways[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] . silicotuberculosis (sĭl″ĭ-kō-tū-bĕr-kū-lō′sĭs) [″ tuberculum , a little swelling, Gr. osis , condition] Silicosis associated with pulmonary tuberculosis.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Silicosis

    We report the case of silicosis in a 50-year-old woman that presented with pulmonary fibrosis and later developed pulmonary tuberculosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The first case of silicosis, initially complicated by pulmonary tuberculosis, which later developed into advanced lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma of the lung is reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma of the lung, an Epstein-Barr virus-associated undifferentiated carcinoma, is a rare entity of pulmonary malignancy, which tends to affect[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia

    tuberculosis, or confirmed bacterial pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The cavitary lung lesions, initially diagnosed as pulmonary tuberculosis, were proved to be PCP by lung biopsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, pulmonary tuberculosis and visceral leishmaniasis in an adult HIV negative patient Antonio Carlos Toledo Jr. and Márcio Rodrigues de Castro[scielo.br]

  • Anthracosis

    CONCLUSION: Prevalence of pulmonary tuberculosis was higher among those with bronchial stenosis (P 0.05).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with anthracosis were found to have pulmonary tuberculosis more frequently.[lungindia.com] In 42 patients pulmonary tuberculosis was confirmed either bacteriologically (n 32) or histologically (n 10).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumonia

  • Pulmonary Sarcoidosis

    Abstract The case of sarcoidosis of the lungs is described in a 50 years old female who presented with symptoms similar to pulmonary tuberculosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She was provisionally diagnosed as pulmonary tuberculosis and treated accordingly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: HRCT findings were available for 65 of 87 patients with pulmonary sarcoidosis and all 108 patients with pulmonary tuberculosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Rust colored – usually caused by pneumococcal bacteria (in pneumonia), pulmonary embolism, lung cancer or pulmonary tuberculosis.[en.wikipedia.org] Before mechanical ventilation, coma could be confirmed to be due to CO2 narcosis caused by exorbitant arterial hypercapnia (PCO2, 193 mm Hg).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] All patients requiring hospitalization for an acute exacerbation should undergo testing to quantify hypoxemia and hypercapnia. Hypercapnia may exist without hypoxemia.[merckmanuals.com]
