291 Possible Causes for Pleurisy, Pulmonary Infiltrate, Tachycardia

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Hampton’s Hump and Westermark’s Sign are the only findings with any specificity to pulmonary embolism.[clinicaladvisor.com] Pulmonary embolism (PE) represents a clinical challenge for clinicians because of nonspecific presentations, including dyspnea, chest pain, and tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It can mimic pneumonia, congestive heart failure, and a viral illness known as pleurisy.[vascularcures.org]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    We describe such a case, which involved a 70-year-old man who presented with chest pain, hemoptysis, and bilateral pulmonary infiltrates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] pregnancy and older age Small infarcts usually have minimal symptoms; if bronchial circulation is inadequate (so reduced collateral circulation), then have shortness of breath, tachycardia[pathologyoutlines.com] . - Overlying pleura shows patches of fibrinous pleurisy due to irritation. - With time the center of the infarct becomes brown and eventually pale as the hemorrhage breaks[histopathology-india.net]

  • Pneumonia

    Twenty-four days after the initiation of daptomycin and sulbactam/ampicillin, he developed a fever and pulmonary infiltration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 23-month-old girl visited the emergency department with high fever, cough, first wheezing episode, chest retraction and tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At 68, Clinton falls into this category, and complications of pneumonia include: Pleurisy—where the thin linings between your lungs and ribcage (pleura) become inflamed, which[newsweek.com]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    The autopsy revealed a huge tumorous mass originating from the central bronchus, infiltrating the large vessels, pulmonary parenchyma, pericardium, and the right ventricle[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In other instances, symptoms such as pleuritic pain, Pancoast syndrome, or superior vena cava syndrome develop when there is extensive tumour burden within the thorax.[histopathology-india.net] : Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma Lab 7: Colon: Adenocarcinoma Lab 7: Lung & Liver: Metastatic Adenocarcinoma[peir.path.uab.edu]

  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    Chemical pneumonia The physical symptoms of this type of pneumonia range from tachypnea, tachycardia, wheezing or cyanosis.[symptoma.com] Aspiration pneumonia is defined as pulmonary infiltration caused by inhaled material, either solid or liquid, that is inherently toxic or that initiates a toxic response.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] increased fluids (3l/day), thin up mucous, increased RR, and to replace insensible losses, antipyretics, fever, analgesics (chest pain), antiemtic (gerd,proton pump inhibitor) -Pleurisy[quizlet.com]

  • Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis

    The event was associated with multiple episodes of sustained ventricular tachycardia without any structural heart changes or electrolyte disturbances.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chest CT demonstrated bilateral pulmonary infiltrates. A punch biopsy of the rash showed leukocytoclastic vasculitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (B) Multiple ventricular tachycardias in intensive care unit monitoring. (C) Same patient post-transvenous temporary pacing.[rbti.org.br]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    This case report highlights the risk of misdiagnosis in patients with generalized lympho-adenopathy and pulmonary infiltrates, particularly in Africans young patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe the case of an 82-year-old man with pulmonary tuberculosis and tuberculous pleurisy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present the case of a 45-year-old male diagnosed to have carcinoma base of tongue, whose chest radiograph showed bilateral lung infiltrates and was referred for evaluation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    If a focal pulmonary infiltrate was noted, sputum samples were obtained for Gram's staining, acid-fast staining, and bacterial, fungal, and mycobacterial culture.[nejm.org] Some of the other symptoms of bacterial pneumonia are yperthermia or hypothermia, tachypnea, tachycardia, central cyanosis, and mental impairment.[symptoma.com] ICD-10-CM J15.9 is grouped within Diagnostic Related Group(s) (MS-DRG v 36.0): 193 Simple pneumonia and pleurisy with mcc 194 Simple pneumonia and pleurisy with cc 195 Simple[icd10data.com]

  • Legionnaires' Disease

    Histologic examination of the basal pulmonary infiltrates showed fibrosing alveolitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On admission, he was febrile, toxic looking, dehydrated with hypotension and tachycardia. No clinical signs of respiratory infection were detected on admission.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Coughing, shortness of breath, pleurisy -like pain, and abdominal distress are common, and occasionally some mental confusion is present.[web.archive.org]

  • Lung Abscess

    Peripheral neutrophil counts were higher in patients with abscess than in those with only pulmonary infiltration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] B- Signs: 1- General ; fever, tachypnea, tachycardia, pallor, clubbing ........etc. 2- Local ; of pleurisy (rub), consolidation (br br, TVF), effusion ( dullness, intensity[slideshare.net] […] pulmonary disease (COPD) – Chronic bronchitis, emphysema Asthma Extrinsic allergic alveolitis Bronchiestasis Pneumonia Sarcoidosis Tuberculosis Lung abscess Pneumoconiosis Pleurisy[mydentistryjourney.wordpress.com]
