  • Unresolved Pneumonia

    Of these lesions a significant number are described by pathologists as 'unresolved pneumonia'.[] We report an unusual case of unresolved pneumonia in a 59 yr old woman due to endobronchial lipoma and actinomycosis, two rare diseases that have never been described before[]

  • Bronchiectasis

    […] and unresolved pneumonia, and CD4 T-cell counts 100 cells per cubic millimeter.[] , foreign body, bronchial carcinoid, unresolved right middle lobe pneumonia, and primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD).[] Etiology: Inflammatory diseases of bronchial wall, e. g. unresolved pneumonia, bronchopneumonia, whooping cough, measles, complicating chronic sinusitis and tuberculosis in[]

  • Foreign Body in the Bronchus

    pneumonia decreased breath sounds wheezing Evaluation Foreign body CXR shows hyperinflation of the affected side ABG necessary for appropriately evaluating ventilation may[] […] long-term obstruction may present with less severe respiratory symptoms dysphagia fever hemoptysis dyspnea chest pain symptoms indicative of secondary infection Physical exam unresolved[]

  • Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome

    Organizing pneumonia (OP) may be secondary to many clinical settings, including various infections, drugs, radiation therapy, malignant diseases, and connective tissue diseases. The concomitant occurrence of OP with human immunodeficiency virus infection has rarely been described. Recently, we encountered a case of[…][]

  • Middle Lobe Syndrome

    Abstract The mechanics of collateral ventilation in the right middle lobe of 5 young, normal volunteers were studied using a bronchoscopic wedge technique, and the results were compared with those from an upper lobe of the same subjects. At functional residual capacity, the resistance to collateral ventilation in[…][]

  • Adenosine Deaminase Deficiency

    A 4-month-old male received a T-lymphocyte-depleted haploidentical bone marrow transplant (BMT) for correction of severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) due to adenosine deaminase (ADA) deficiency. Although previous haploidentical bone marrow transplants have been attempted in ADA-deficient SCID, complete[…][]

  • Severe Combined Immunodeficiency

    A neonate was diagnosed as having SCID from his umbilical cord blood cells immediately after birth because his older brother had died of SCID eight months earlier. One locus-mismatched unrelated umbilical cord blood cell transplantation without conditioning was performed at the age of 30 days. The CD3-positive cells[…][]

  • Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia

    Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) also known as immotile cilia syndrome is a genetic disorder characterised by chronic infections of the upper and lower respiratory tracts, male infertility and situs inversus totalis. Authors are presenting clinical details of a patient who was operated upon for recalcitrant[…][]

  • Kartagener Syndrome

    Camner and coworkers [2] first suggested ciliary dyskinesia as the cause of Kartagener syndrome in 1975. They described two patients with Kartagener syndrome who had immotile cilia and immotile spermatozoa. These patients had poor mucociliary clearance because the cilia that lined their upper airways were not[…][]
