  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    infiltrates on imaging; and varying degrees of inflammation, fibrosis, or both on lung biopsy. [2] Raghu G, Weycker D, Edelsberg J, et al.[] infiltrates on chest CT scans obtained at hospital admission, and no other evident cause of respiratory dysfunction after thorough clinical assessments.[ 2 ] These clinical[] Incidence and prevalence of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    infiltrates on imaging; and varying degrees of inflammation, fibrosis, or both on lung biopsy. [2] Raghu G, Weycker D, Edelsberg J, et al.[] (blue lips, nail beds, and sometimes skin due to lack of oxygen in the tissue) clubbing of the fingers (enlarged fingertips) Pulmonary fibrosis can lead to several severe[] Histologically, pulmonary fibrosis is characterized by cellular infiltration along with thickening and fibrosis of the walls of the alveoli.[]

  • Legionnaires' Disease

    Findings on an initial radiograph of the chest may be normal, but eventually a pulmonary infiltrate will develop [ 2 , 3 ].[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    A chest radiograph shows bilateral pulmonary infiltrates consistent with pulmonary edema and borderline enlargement of the cardiac silhouette.[] Poor judgement Breathlessness during rest Rapid heart rate (90 to 100 bpm at rest) Blue/grey lips or fingernails (cyanosis) Fever of up to 101.3 F/38.5 C Profuse perspiration[] In addition, the radiologic picture of symmetric bilateral pulmonary interstitial infiltrates would be unusual for aspiration pneumonitis, which typically shows a localized[]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    The disease is characterized by bilateral pulmonary infiltrates and severe hypoxemia due to increased alveolar-capillary permeability.[] Cyanosis (blue skin, lips, and nails caused by lack of oxygen to the tissues) is often seen.[] infiltrates with associated hypoxemia.[]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    There are diffuse bilateral pulmonary infiltrates with air bronchograms visible. The following blood test results are obtained: Q3. What is the likely diagnosis?[] Radiologic progression of pulmonary infiltrates predicts a worse prognosis in severe community-acquired pneumonia than bacteremia. Chest. 2009, 135: 165-172.[] Definitions Pneumonia was defined as pulmonary infiltrate on a chest X-ray not known to have pre-existed and symptoms consistent with pneumonia, including cough, dyspnoea,[]

  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    Aspiration pneumonia should be suspected in those patients with pulmonary infiltrates and a predisposing cause of aspiration (e.g., dysphagia or fall in consciousness Anaerobes[] Pink-colored to red sputum (hemoptysis) Bluish tinge of the lips, fingers and/or toes (cyanosis) Causes Aspiration pneumonia is unlikely to arise in a healthy person who is[] Fever, cough, and bilateral lung infiltrates.

  • Lymphocytic Interstitial Pneumonia

    Similar infiltrates are seen in children, often with mediastinal widening and hilar enlargement denoting pulmonary lymphoid hyperplasia.[] The incidence of respiratory failure with cyanosis is higher amongst children with LIP. The diagnosis of LIP is often delayed due to the nonspecific symptoms.[] Those patients treated accordingly have shown a good response to corticosteroid treatment, which led to complete resolution of the lung infiltrates 15 ) .[]
