1,121 Possible Causes for Pleural Effusion, Pulmonary Infiltrate

  • Pneumonia

    Twenty-four days after the initiation of daptomycin and sulbactam/ampicillin, he developed a fever and pulmonary infiltration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Following the development of malignant pleural effusion, he underwent chest drainage and was administered intrathoracic talc as a pleurodesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He was eventually diagnosed with sarcoidosis based on bilateral lung infiltrates and granulomas in a transbronchial biopsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

    Acute bronchitis was defined by onset of cough 2–14 days (with or without sputum) prior to hospitalization in the absence of other lung disease or lung infiltrates (chest[karger.com] Pleural effusion, hilar lymphadenopathy and pneumothorax are uncommon findings.[radiopaedia.org] Diagnostic procedures: Drainage and culture of pleural effusions may relieve symptoms and identify the infection.[patient.info]

  • Legionnaires' Disease

    Histologic examination of the basal pulmonary infiltrates showed fibrosing alveolitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] an exudative pleural effusion with high ADA activity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Findings on an initial radiograph of the chest may be normal, but eventually a pulmonary infiltrate will develop [ 2 , 3 ].[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com]

  • Lung Abscess

    Peripheral neutrophil counts were higher in patients with abscess than in those with only pulmonary infiltration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He subsequently underwent resection of the lung abscess and removal of exudative pleural effusion on the fourth hospital day.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Radiation Pneumonitis

    Pneumonia carcinomatosa, occurring after lung irradiation, can therefore be added to the differential diagnosis of radiographic peripheral pulmonary infiltrates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pleural effusions or atelectasis are also sometimes seen 1,5 .[radiopaedia.org] . • Many patients have no abnormal chest findings,while others have crackles or a pleural rub over the area of irradiation. • Dullness to percussion from a small pleural effusion[slideshare.net]

  • Pulmonary Tularemia

    We present a case of serologically documented tularemia in an animal-hide handler who demonstrated multiple pulmonary infiltrates with cavitation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] effusion Studies Labs culture is hazardous positive titers on serology diagnostic Making the diagnosis based on clinical presentation, risk factors, and serology Differential[step2.medbullets.com] We report a case of primary tularemic pneumonia presenting with pulmonary infiltrates and necrotizing mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes in an otherwise healthy subject from[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

The following blood test results are obtained: Q3. What is the likely diagnosis?[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Small Cell Carcinoma of the Lung
