    blebs) and fluid-filled blisters at the top portions of the lungs (apical bullae), which can lead to collapse of the lung unrelated to pressure- or physical-induced trauma[rarediseasesindia.org] The development of thick, sticky mucus secretions within the lung tissue (cystic lung disease), fluid accumulation and weakening of the lung adherence to the chest wall (subpleural[rarediseasesindia.org]

  • Lung Biopsy showing Centrilobular Emphysema

    Any lucency 10 mm should be referred to as subpleural blebs / bullae (synonymous) 3 .[radiopaedia.org] The affected lobules are almost always subpleural and demonstrate small focal lucencies up to 10 mm in size.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Pulmonary Barotrauma

    CT of the chest (performed in 12 cases) revealed subpleural emphysematous blebs in 5 cases that were not detected in preinjury and postinjury chest radiographs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In five patients CT revealed subpleural emphysematous blebs or cysts that were not detected by conventional radiography.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia

    Features which are highly suggestive of PCP in patients with CD4 counts below 200/mm 3 include 5 : small pneumatoceles subpleural blebs fine reticular interstitial changes[radiopaedia.org]

  • Esophagobronchial Fistula

  • Familial Spontaneous Pneumothorax

    Spontaneous pneumothorax is most often related to rupture of subpleural apical blebs.[advancedradteaching.com] However, spontaneous primary pneumothorax often occurs due to the rupture subpleural blebs/bullae ( 10 ).[ispub.com] However, it is unclear whether height affects development of subpleural blebs or whether more negative apical pleural pressure causes pre-existing blebs to rupture.[thoracicgroup.com]

  • Tension Pneumothorax
