    Rupture of a small subpleural abscess may result in pyopneumothorax, which may erode into a bronchus, producing a bronchopleural fistula.[] Initial chest radiographs revealed empyema, pleural effusion, or pyopneumothorax in 67 patients.[] While in the pathological process involves the pleura, there are pyopneumothorax, empyema.[]

  • Pyopneumothorax

We present a case of tension pyopneumothorax in a child.[] Rupture of a coccidioidal pulmonary cavity with subsequent pyopneumothorax is a rare clinical event, even in areas endemic for coccidioidomycosis.[]

  • Staphylococcus Aureus Infection

    Smokers who switch to vaping report a decrease in respiratory infections. A previous case report of a non-smoker who started to vape and experienced a resolution of chronic tonsillitis proposed that this could be due to bactericidal effects of propylene glycol.

    Left tension pyopneumothorax was diagnosed, and he received left lower lobectomy after pleural drainage.[] If infected tissue involves visceral pleura, it will develop pyopneumothorax or pleural empyema ( 3 ).[] […] sputum with air fluid formation in the abscess cavity Fate 1- Complete cure ( especially with good ttt ) 2- Chronicity 3- Infection of the other lung 4- Open into pleura - pyopneumothorax[]

  • Pneumonia

    Pyopneumothorax - eg, following rupture of a staphylococcal lung abscess in the pleural cavity. Deep vein thrombosis.[] The possible complications of percutaneous drainage catheters include pneumothorax, pyopneumothorax, and bronchopleural fistula. 50 CONCLUSION The role of interventional radiology[] When an initial 18-gauge access needle is advanced into the lung abscess, normal lung parenchyma should be avoided to prevent the development of a bronchopleural fistula or pyopneumothorax[]
