  • Polycythemia Vera
    Pulmonary Emphysema

    Polycythemia vera is a rare chronic myeloproliferative disorder. An increase in red cell mass is the primary feature of polycythemia vera. Bone marrow analysis, however, shows a proliferation of all three myeloid lines: erythrocytes, granulocytes and platelets. The onset of polycythemia vera is often insidious. Early…[2]

  • Anthracosis
    Pulmonary Emphysema

    Anthracosis is a form of pneumoconiosis, a chronic pulmonary disease resulting from prolonged inhalation of dust. This condition results from prolonged inhalation of soot or coal dust particles which render the lungs black. Because anthracosis results from prolonged exposure to coal dust or soot particles, diagnosis…[3]

  • Pulmonary Edema
    Pulmonary Emphysema

    Pulmonary edema is a clinical term that refers to the abnormal buildup of fluids within the lung tissues that causes physiological disturbances to the patient. Patients usually present with severe left sided heart failure with pulmonary hypertension and alveolar flooding in the lungs. Pulmonary edema from different…[4]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis
    Pulmonary Emphysema

    Mycobacterium tuberculosis is the causative agent of pulmonary tuberculosis, a highly contagious infectious disease that is characterized by a granulomatous inflammation of the lungs. The disease may spread to other organs and requires a long-term antibiotic treatment. Even in cases of active pulmonary TB,…[5]

  • Cystic Fibrosis
    Pulmonary Emphysema

    Cystic fibrosis (mucoviscidosis) is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder of the exocrine glands. It is characterized by the production of abnormally viscous mucus by the affected glands. Cystic fibrosis is usually recognized in infancy or early childhood. The clinical manifestations of cystic fibrosis are typically…[6]

  • Myeloproliferative Disease
    Pulmonary Emphysema

    Myeloproliferative diseases are a collective group of disorders characterized by the clonal proliferation of at least one hematopoietic cell lineage. The ensuing conditions are associated with severe complications. Myeloproliferative diseases have similar clinical pictures and generally feature nonspecific symptoms such…[7]

  • Air Pollution
    Pulmonary Emphysema
  • Multidrug-resistant Tuberculosis
    Pulmonary Emphysema

    Multi-drug resistant tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by determined strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis that are resistant to at least both isoniazid and rifampin, the two most commonly used antimicrobials to treat tuberculosis. Multi-drug resistance severely limits available treatment options. Clinical…[8]

  • Bronchiectasis
    Pulmonary Emphysema

    The clinical manifestations typical with bronchiectasis are cough and daily mucopurulent production of sputum which may last from months to years. Blood-streaked sputum or hemoptysis may be as a result of airway damage following acute infection. Less specific symptoms include dsypnea, pleuritic chest pain, weight…[9]
