547 Possible Causes for Pulmonary Calcification, Pulmonary Fibrosis

  • Silicosis

    In this study, we hypothesized that MUC1 deficiency would reduce susceptibility to pulmonary fibrosis in a mouse model of silicosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] nodules calcified pulmonary densities calcified mediastinal lymph nodes eggshell calcification[radiopaedia.org] Eggshell calcifications in hilar and mediastinal lymph nodes may help distinguish silicosis from other pulmonary disorders but are not a pathognomonic finding and are not[merckmanuals.com]

  • Asbestosis

    To determine whether the HRCT findings are useful to differentiate asbestosis from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Asbestos can cause a variety of pulmonary diseases, some generally benign pleural changes, such as effusion, plaques, calcification, and hypertrophy, and some more pernicious[bcmj.org] The remaining 18 cases (mean smoking history of 53 pack-years) showed interstitial fibrosis that was judged to be most consistent with smoking-associated pulmonary fibrosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subcutaneous Tissue Disease

    An HRCT scan of the lung showed pulmonary fibrosis.

  • Calcinosis

    Most patients develop pulmonary fibrosis within the first 3 years of the disease, but only a subset will go on to develop progressive pulmonary fibrosis.[appliedradiology.com] Metastatic pulmonary calcification after renal transplantation. Eur Respir J. 1997: 10(8): 1925-1927. [Pubmed][revistanefrologia.com] fibrosis, and pulmonary hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Talcosis

  • Caplan Syndrome

    Severe respiratory disability is uncommon but massive pulmonary fibrosis can progress at times. Spontaneous remission of the lung disease can occur.[patient.info] Otherwise prognosis is as for RA; lung disease may remit spontaneously, but pulmonary fibrosis may also progress.[en.wikipedia.org] Caplan syndrome is a pulmonary fibrosis in a people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who have been exposed to a mining dusts (coal, silica, asbestos).[autoimmunemom.com]

  • Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia

  • Pleural Calcification

    A sample of 7000 of the population revealed 461 (6.5%) with pleural thickening and calcification, of whom 103 (1.47% of the total) had evidence of interstitial pulmonary fibrosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pulmonary calcifications associated with chronic renal failure are rare conditions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The condition of pleural fibrosis presents similar symptoms to other respiratory conditions such as pulmonary fibrosis and asbestosis and can be caused by asbestos exposure[scottishasbestoshelpline.co.uk]
