Bronchoscopic Removal of a Long-standing Aspirated Iron Pill

We report a case of an aspirated iron pill, which did not disintegrate and presented with chronic cough. Imaging revealed a foreign body in the right bronchus, and bronchoscopic removal allowed resolution of an associated pneumonia, without any further symptoms on subsequent surveillance.

Endobronchial involvement of actinomycosis may be caused by aspiration of foreign bodies or broncholithiasis and may bronchoscopically masquerade as malignancy. A case of 68-year-old man is reported, who prese...

Authors: Skoczyński S, Minarowski Ł, Tobiczyk E, Oraczewska A, Glinka K, Ficek K, Mróz R, Barczyk A Abstract Respiratory failure is one of the most important risk factors for diagnostic bronchofiberoscopy (BF), whereas therapeutic bronchoscopies are typically performed in intubated patients. Only a few published studies analyzed the outcomes of noninvasive mechanical ventilation (NIV)-facilitated BF. In this case series, we present our experiences with NIV-facilitated diagnostic and therapeutic BF performed in patients with respiratory failure that was associated with acute interstitial pulmonary disease, ...

We report an unusual case of organizing pneumonia occurring as a consequence of obstruction due to a carcinoid tumour and its complete resolution by bronchoscopic relief of obstruction without the need for steroid therapy. Organizing pneumonia is a well ‐known clinical entity resulting in response to noxious stimuli causing lung injury. It is known to occur with infectious disease processes, neoplasms, post lung surgery or radiation therapy and when idiopathic, is called cryptogenic organizing pneumonia. We present an unusual case of a 48‐year‐ old woman who presented with chronic cough and progressive dyspnoea while...

We report the case of a 3 year-old boy who presented cough and intermittent fever for one month. After multiple antibiotics courses, he presented a mild hemoptysis and dyspnea with anemia and biological inflammatory syndrome but no change in general condition. Chest X-Ray showed a left parenchymal opacity extending to the entire left lung with mediastinal deviation to the right. Ultrasonography didn’t show pleural effusion. We investigated the nature of the lesion.Methods: CT scan showed a voluminous heterogeneous intrathoracic mass with complete left lower lobe retraction, along with two right pulmonary nodules. A t...

Rationale: Bronchobiliary fistula (BBF) is a rare clinical condition which is characterized by a channel between biliary tract and bronchial tree. BBF can present with fever, dyspnea, and cough. However, it can be easily misdiagnosed as biliary vomiting, dyspnea, or even severe pneumonia. Patient concerns: A 53-year-old woman was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2011 and underwent radical mastectomy and lymph node dissection, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. Unfortunately, the patient suffered from bone metastasis during the 1st year and liver metastasis during the 2nd year after radical mastectomy. In 2013, the p...
