260 Possible Causes for Necrotizing Pneumonia, Pulmonary Tuberculosis

  • Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis

    […] carcinoma or as the cause of poststenotic cavernous pneumonia that led to an abscess), infectious diseases (like tuberculosis, aspergillosis and other fungal infections,[aafp.org] Wegener's granulomatosis disease mimicking pulmonary tuberculosis.[jacpjournal.org] , granulomas of oral cavity and periorbital regions, skin lesions; eye problems–eg, conjunctivitis; renal disease may be asymptomic, necrotizing hemorrhagic rhinorrhea, paranasal[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] Indolent nodular pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) in workers exposed to silica dust may go undetected clinically and radiographically, especially in the absence of identification[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is associated with the development of other diseases, including pulmonary tuberculosis, lung cancer and autoimmune diseases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mycobacterium Kansasii

    Transbronchial biopsy indicated either non-necrotizing granulomata or bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Concomitant hand infection and pulmonary tuberculosis is extremely rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bronchoscopy was performed, with a tentative diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis, but Mycobacterium kansasii was eventually identified.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atelectasis

    Pneumonia/Pulmonary Gangrene (see Necrotizing Pneumonia and Pulmonary Gangrene , [[Necrotizing Pneumonia and Pulmonary Gangrene]]) Radiation Fibrosis (see Radiation Pneumonitis[mdnxs.com] Eight patients (3 men and 5 women) with a medical history of active pulmonary tuberculosis were involved in this study. The median age was 23 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Another common cause is pulmonary tuberculosis. Smokers and the elderly are also at an increased risk.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Pulmonary Sporotrichosis

    pneumonia. [2] However, rarely classic single thin-walled cavity can be seen associated with pulmonary sporotrichosis as found in our case. [2] The direct examination of[jlponline.org] 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]

  • Bronchiectasis

    pneumonia (staphylococcus, tuberculosis) Cystic fibrosis : obstruction due to mucus plugs, infection due to decreased ciliary clearance of bacteria Kartegener syndrome :[pathologyoutlines.com] Moderate-to-severe bronchiectasis patients had lower body mass index (BMI), higher frequency of prior tuberculosis, lower prevalence of BDR, worse pulmonary function, and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There was no evidence of pulmonary tuberculosis or a lung mass. Indirect laryngoscopy revealed left sided vocal cord paralysis.[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    This case highlights the unique presentation of necrotizing pneumonia caused by P. stutzeri and the importance of emerging antimicrobial resistance in P. stutzeri.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A review of his past medical records revealed he was diagnosed to have sputum smear-positive pulmonary tuberculosis 5 years earlier, for which he had received multiple courses[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The authors report a case of coinfection of pulmonary paragonimiasis and pulmonary tuberculosis which is an uncommon coinfection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Kerosene Poisoning

    An initial assessment of kerosene poisoning complicated with right pneumothorax in an underweight child to rule out pulmonary tuberculosis was made.[nigeriamedj.com]

  • Lupus Vulgaris

    PNEUMONIA .LUNG ABSCESS Gravity dependant segments Thick wall Air-fluid levels FUNGAL INFECTIONS Aspergillus Fungus ball METASTATIC DISEASE Thin walled (Squamous cell) 13[slideshare.net] The result of chest roentogenography was compatible with pulmonary tuberculosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The infection can affect all organs, but pulmonary tuberculosis is the most common form.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pyopneumothorax

    A rare case of a severe anaerobic necrotizing pneumonia complicated by pyopneumothorax and monoarthritis due to anaerobic Peptostreptococcus magnus is described in a 20-year-old[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pleural disease and pulmonary tuberculosis may also predispose patients to pleural empyema. Treatment consists of drainage and antimicrobial chemotherapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At thorax x-ray, the pyopneumothorax was prevailing on the right lung(60% of the cases),it was associated with pulmonary tuberculosis lesions in 75% of the cases.[erj.ersjournals.com]
