1,412 Possible Causes for Pulmonary Infiltrate

  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection

    RSV infection is probably less severe in the late post-BMT period, but needs to be considered early in the differential diagnosis of pulmonary infiltrates in this patient[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Cytologic examination of a bronchoalveolar lavage specimen from a 6-year-old bone marrow transplant recipient revealed pulmonary infiltrates and occasional cells[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Respiratory syncytial virus disease must be considered in the differential diagnosis of fever and pulmonary infiltrates in immunocompromised adults.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumonia

    Twenty-four days after the initiation of daptomycin and sulbactam/ampicillin, he developed a fever and pulmonary infiltration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The studies enrolled 151 participants with CAP or immunosuppressed patients with pulmonary infiltrates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Figure 1 Pulmonary infiltrates before and after steroid treatment.[dx.doi.org]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).[emedicine.com] infiltrates, typically multinodular, sometimes calcified hilar nodes (seen on chest x-ray) Confirmed by microbiologic testing Usually in areas with high prevalence of TB[merckmanuals.com] Histopathology of chronic bronchitis showing hyperplasia of mucous glands and infiltration of the airway wall with inflammatory cells.[emedicine.com]

  • Atelectasis

    However, lung infiltrates cleared over the next 3 days. A tracheotomy was done 6 days after the last PFC instillation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pulmonary manifestations are rare and include pleuritis and transient radiological infiltrations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    pulmonary infiltrates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A chest radiograph shows bilateral pulmonary infiltrates consistent with pulmonary edema and borderline enlargement of the cardiac silhouette.[doi.org] infiltrates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sarcoma of the Lung

    The computed tomography (CT) of the thorax (Figure 2) showed a well-defined mass measuring 8 7 6 cm on the right lung, infiltrating the diaphragm with small nodules of 1–2[f1000research.com] Bronchoscopy revealed a right-sided growth involving the middle and lower pulmonary lobes.[f1000research.com]

  • Influenza Pneumonia

    Differentiation between a bacterial and viral etiology for the pulmonary infiltrates frequently presents a diagnostic dilemma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At the emergency room, oxygen saturation was 79% on room air Chest X-ray revealed bilateral diffuse pulmonary infiltrates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Influenza viruses infect respiratory epithelial cells and can themselves cause diffuse pulmonary infiltrates and severe hypoxia, but concomitant or secondary bacterial pneumonia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    It is characterized by the acute onset of diffuse, bilateral pulmonary infiltrates secondary to noncardiogenic pulmonary edema, refractory hypoxia, and decreased lung compliance[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The disease is characterized by bilateral pulmonary infiltrates and severe hypoxemia due to increased alveolar-capillary permeability.[orpha.net] infiltrates with associated hypoxemia.[vumc.org]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Hampton’s Hump and Westermark’s Sign are the only findings with any specificity to pulmonary embolism.[clinicaladvisor.com] The major utility of the chest film is in finding other causes of the patient’s symptoms (i.e. an infiltrate in pneumonia or absent lung markings in pneumothorax).[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Lingular Pneumonia
