Niedoceniana rola torakoskopii w diagnostyce gru źlicy opłucnej

Conclusions Tuberculosis is still a current clinical problem. Negative inflammatory factors do not exclude the active tuberculosis process. Imaging studies are not specific to the diagnosis of tuberculosis. Thoracoscopy gives you the opportunity to evaluate the lung and lung cavity and to take material for histopathological examination – which, in the case of a tuberculosis test, allows for proper and specific treatment.

Authors: Underner M, Peiffer G, Perriot J, Jaafari N Abstract Cocaine can be responsible for many psychiatric and/or somatic disorders. The aim of this systematic literature review of data was to expose relations between cocaine use and pulmonary complications. Cocaine can be responsible for acute respiratory symptoms (cough, black sputum, hemoptysis, dyspnea, wheezing, chest pain) and for various pulmonary disorders including barotrauma (pneumothorax, pneumomediastinum, subcutaneous emphysema, pneumopericardium), airway damage, asthma, bronchiolitis obliterans with organizing pneumonia, acute pulmonary edema, alve...

Conclusions: Cases with silicosis can develop complications like tuberculosis, lung cancer, progressive massive fibrosis, cor pulmonale, broncholithiasis, or tracheobronchial compression by lymph nodes. Pleural involvement in silicosis is rare. Spontaneous pneumothorax is a pleural complication that can develop in such cases. Usually in silicosis pneumothorax is unilateral. We report here an original article with silicosis who presented with bilateral spontaneous pneumothoraxes occurring simultaneously. The rarity of its clinical presentation in the form of bilateral simultaneous spontaneous pneumothorax combined with the ...

By SAURABH JHA, MD Slumdog TB No one knows who gave Rahul Roy tuberculosis. Roy’s charmed life as a successful trader involved traveling in his Mercedes C class between his apartment on the plush Nepean Sea Road in South Mumbai and offices in Bombay Stock Exchange. He cared little for Mumbai’s weather. He seldom rolled down his car windows – his ambient atmosphere, optimized for his comfort, rarely changed. Historically TB, or “consumption” as it was known, was a Bohemian malady; the chronic suffering produced a rhapsody which produced fine art. TB was fashionable in Victorian Britain...

Conclusion: In this case report, a 28-year-old male was treated for thoracic Pott's disease that proved to be metastatic lung adenocarcinoma. To avoid such misdiagnoses in the future, physicians should better differentiate spinal TB from other malignancies that may affect the spine. This study underscores the importance of obtaining at least a chest X-ray in any patient with suspected Pott's disease, irrespective of age, to help rule out lung cancer or other pathologies.

Conclusion: Our data allow to determine following features of the TE: the predominantly right-side localization, the young age of the patients, the cyclic recurrence of the hemoptysis and pain in the chest, the recurrent right-side pneumothorax, the correlation of the onset and/or regression of the radiological symptoms with the beginning and/or end of the menstrual cycle, infertility, pelvic pain, algomenorrhea, and surgeries on the pelvic organs in the anamnesis. In most of our observations, the endometriosis affected the diaphragm and was accompanied by the pneumothorax.Thus, the clinical and morphological hypodiagnosti...

​"She's worried I had a heart attack."That was the answer I got from the 70ish-year-old patient pointing at his wife when I asked why he came to the emergency department. She quickly added, "He had terrible pain four days ago on the right side, and now he gets winded when he walks."I had already seen his ECG, so I assured her that it appeared normal. I was going to order a chest x-ray, however, because his lungs sounds were pretty quiet. She said he had COPD, and wanted to know if he needed an inhaler.The last time I had seen something like this was in medical school 30 years ago. At that time, I was ...

Background: Diagnosing exudative pleural effusions is often challenging. Newer techniques like pleuroscopy are costly and complex to perform, making its availability questionable.Aims &Objectives: To study the diagnostic utility of closed needle pleural biopsy in exudative pleural effusions.Methods: It was a prospective study, in which closed needle pleural biopsy using Cope’s needle was done in patients with exudative pleural effusion. The samples obtained were evaluated using histopathological and microbiological tests and the results were compared with that of pleural fluid analysis.Results: 240 patients with ...

Conclusion: Neoplastic mediastinal lesions are more common than nonneoplastic lesions, with metastatic carcinoma being the most common cause followed by tuberculosis. A wide variety of lesions observed in this study stress on the importance of cytohistological diagnosis in all cases of mediastinal lesions for the final diagnosis and management planning. A guided FNAC or core biopsy is still accurate, well tolerated, and devoid of major complications.

E Ugurlu, G Altinisik, U Aydogmus, F BirNigerian Journal of Clinical Practice 2017 20(4):503-506A 19-year-old male patient was observed due to having central diabetes insipidus (DI) for five years. He had a history of smoking 5–10 cigarettes a day for two years, but stopped smoking from the last month. The computerized tomography revealed thin-walled cystic lesions in different sizes more dominantly in the upper lobes and consolidated areas in the left upper and lower lobes. The wedge resection from the right lower lobe revealed pulmonary langerhans cell histiocytosis. Follow-up acid-fast bacteria (AFB) examinations ...
