341 Possible Causes for Pulmonary Calcification, Pulmonary Fibrosis

  • Silicosis

    […] nodules calcified pulmonary densities calcified mediastinal lymph nodes eggshell calcification[] In this study, we hypothesized that MUC1 deficiency would reduce susceptibility to pulmonary fibrosis in a mouse model of silicosis.[] 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[]

  • Anthracosis

    Pulmonary function tests can help assess the extent of the disease.[] Anthracosis - lung caused by inhalation of coal dust particles and characterized by the development of pulmonary fibrosis.[] […] of lung Cystic lung disease (acquired) Lung disease NOS Pulmolithiasis Type 1 Excludes acute interstitial pneumonitis ( J84.114 ) pulmonary insufficiency following surgery[]

  • Asbestosis

    Asbestos can cause a variety of pulmonary diseases, some generally benign pleural changes, such as effusion, plaques, calcification, and hypertrophy, and some more pernicious[] BACKGROUND: To determine whether the HRCT findings are useful to differentiate asbestosis from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).[] […] costopheric angles, thickened interlobar septums, and pleural calcifications.[]

  • Caplan Syndrome

    J Clin Imaging Sci Case report: "Tram-line" Calcifications in Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis David Livingston, Celin Rajan, J.[] Severe respiratory disability is uncommon but massive pulmonary fibrosis can progress at times. Spontaneous remission of the lung disease can occur.[] Otherwise prognosis is as for RA; lung disease may remit spontaneously, but pulmonary fibrosis may also progress.[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    […] alveolar microlithiasis J84.03 Idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis J84.09 Other alveolar and parieto-alveolar conditions J84.1 Other interstitial pulmonary diseases with fibrosis[] LV outflow obstruction Acute stenosis of the aortic valve can cause pulmonary edema.[] However, some sonographic signs other than B-lines are useful to differentiate the B-pattern of cardiogenic pulmonary edema, ARDS, and pulmonary fibrosis [ 10 ].[]

  • Systemic Scleroderma

    However, if a patient has severe pulmonary fibrosis, it has the same downhill course as is seen in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.[] Additional features include 4 : dilated esophagus eggshell calcification of mediastinal nodes pleural effusions are uncommon enlargement of cardiac silhouette and pulmonary[] Calcification of the skin is an indicator of tumoral calcinosis and is not seen often.[]

  • Pulmonary Alveolar Microlithiasis

    Our objectives were to investigate the genetic etiology and circulating level of FGF23 in a 50-year-old male with clinical characteristics of PAM and extra-pulmonary calcifications[] While it remains static in some patients, it progresses into pulmonary fibrosis, respiratory failure and cor pulmonale in others.[] KEYWORD Pulmonary calcification - micronodules - microlithiasis - microliths - diffuse calcispherytes - technetium-99m diphosphonate lung scan[]

  • Diffuse Scleroderma

    Chest roentgenograms revealed interstitial infiltrates consistent with pulmonary fibrosis in 33 percent.[] Scleroderma, also known as systemic sclerosis, is an autoimmune connective tissue disorder characterized by multisystem fibrosis and soft tissue calcification.[] fibrosis on chest radiograph and a forced vital capacity of 40.[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Radiologically, healed pulmonary TB can present with cicatrisation, fibro-cavitory disease, end-stage lung destruction, pulmonary calcification, bronchiectasis, trachea-bronchial[] A diagnosis of Interstitial lung disease probably Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis was entertained.[] As the host mounts an appropriate immune response both the pulmonary and nodal disease resolve. Calcification of nodes is seen in 35% of cases 2.[]

  • Silicotuberculosis

    […] nodules calcified pulmonary densities calcified mediastinal lymph nodes eggshell calcification[] Here we show that the inflammatory response and subsequent development of pulmonary fibrosis after inhalation of silica is dependent on the Nalp3 inflammasome.[] IL-1R antagonists have also been successfully used to block fibrosis development in murine models of pulmonary fibrosis ( 24, 25 ).[]
