67 Possible Causes for Pulmonary Tuberculosis, Tracheal Deviation, X-Ray Abnormal

  • Atelectasis

    RESULTS: Eight patients (3 men and 5 women) with a medical history of active pulmonary tuberculosis were involved in this study. The median age was 23 years.[] Another common cause is pulmonary tuberculosis. Smokers and the elderly are also at an increased risk.[] Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis Fungal infections Radiation fibrosis Right middle lobe syndrome (Brock syndrome): Recurrent collapse due to airway disease, infection, or trapping[]

  • Pleural Effusion

    However, unlike repeated sputum cultures of pulmonary tuberculosis, little is known about the role of repeated pleural cultures.[] Large effusion: complete shadowing of the lung with mediastinal shift and tracheal deviation away from the effusion Lateral decubitus view : demonstrates whether fluid is[] Home » Tutorials » Chest X-ray Tutorials » Chest X-ray Abnormalities » Introduction » 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 » Conclusion Key points The pleura and pleural spaces are only[]

  • Pleurisy

    First published: 31 October 2016 Abstract Although both lung cancer and pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) commonly occur in clinical practice, little attention has been paid to[] Abnormalities may be detected through an X-ray if there are other causes of the pleuritic pain.[] Other causes include pulmonary embolism, bronchial carcinoma, pericarditis, pneumonia, myocardial infarction, pulmonary tuberculosis and pneumothorax.[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    The authors report a case of coinfection of pulmonary paragonimiasis and pulmonary tuberculosis which is an uncommon coinfection.[] Radiographic features Chest X-ray abnormalities are nearly always found. However in the presence of HIV infection, a normal X-ray is more common.[] High altitudes are linked to decreased rates of pulmonary tuberculosis infection, disease and mortality.[]

  • Artificial Pneumothorax

Prognosis If the pneumothorax was an isolated event and treatment was initiated early, the prognosis is excellent.[] A chest x-ray should be ordered early in the evaluation of a patient with a suspected pneumothorax.[]

  • Empyema

    A prolonged air leak caused by pulmonary tuberculosis is difficult to treat, and little is known about optimal treatment strategies.[] Tests that may be ordered include: Chest x-ray CT scan of chest Pleural fluid analysis Thoracentesis Treatment The goal of treatment is to cure the infection.[] A relatively rare cause of empyema in the United States is tuberculosis. Tuberculous empyemas are associated with pulmonary tuberculosis. How is it treated?[]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Of these, 79% of female patients of lung cancer were first regarded as pulmonary tuberculosis; 76% belonged to rural area.[] Chest x-ray showed a right hilar mass. Sputum cytology revealed abnormal cells that were "positive for malignancy."[] Unusual causes of lung cysts include infections, such as pulmonary tuberculosis (both active as well as cured), 6,7 non-infectious lung diseases, such as pulmonary leiomyomatosis[]

  • Bronchial Adenocarcinoma

    tuberculosis; a single positive culture for M. tuberculosis ; or epidemiological, clinical, and radiological findings consistent with pulmonary tuberculosis, associated with[] Tumours that haemorrhage can usually be visualised by bronchoscopy and this investigation becomes essential when an abnormal x-ray indicates a mass or collapse of a lobe due[] In addition, non–small cell carcinomas may also be associated with other conditions such as bronchiectasis, pulmonary fibrosis, tuberculosis and other infectious processes[]
