230 Possible Causes for Lung Biopsy Abnormal, Pulmonary Tuberculosis

  • Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis

    Wegener's granulomatosis disease mimicking pulmonary tuberculosis.[jacpjournal.org] Biopsy should be done if possible to confirm the diagnosis of GPA. Clinically abnormal sites may be biopsied first.[merckmanuals.com] The diagnosis of granulomatosis with polyangiitis is confirmed by detecting both abnormal cellular formations, called granulomas, and vasculitis in a biopsy of tissue involved[rxlist.com]

  • Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia

    tuberculosis, or confirmed bacterial pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Open lung biopsy may occasionally be employed. Pulmonary function tests May show a modest reduction in the vital capacity (VC) and the total lung capacity (TLC).[patient.info] The cavitary lung lesions, initially diagnosed as pulmonary tuberculosis, were proved to be PCP by lung biopsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis

    Four patients (8.8%) reported non-massive hemoptysis and three subjects (6.6%) had concomitant pulmonary tuberculosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] biopsy Clinical Findings Almost 1/3 may be asymptomatic even with abnormal chest radiographs Symptoms, which are usually gradual in onset, include: Dry cough (or scant sputum[learningradiology.com] Key Words : Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis (PAP), tuberculosis, diabetic patient.[scielo.br]

  • 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]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    The authors report a case of coinfection of pulmonary paragonimiasis and pulmonary tuberculosis which is an uncommon coinfection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] High altitudes are linked to decreased rates of pulmonary tuberculosis infection, disease and mortality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe a rare case of chronic pulmonary blastomycosis complicated by large pulmonary cavitation in a young service member who was misdiagnosed with active pulmonary tuberculosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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]

  • Pulmonary Cavitary Tuberculosis

  • Pulmonary Sporotrichosis

    The clinical features and roentgenographic changes are nonspecific and usually indistinguishable from reactivated pulmonary tuberculosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Three patients were well 10 to 52 months after treatment, but active pulmonary sporotrichosis was found in the fourth case apparently associated with active pulmonary tuberculosis[nejm.org] Hassan K, Turker T, Zangeneh T Chromoblastomycosis due to Fonsecaea monophora misdiagnosed as sporotrichosis and cutaneous tuberculosis in a pulmonary tuberculosis patient[medicbind.com]
