We present a case of an adult male who underwent bilateral lung transplantation, with the native lung pathology showing diffuse, severe dendriform ossification of the bilateral upper and lower lung lobes. The gross and histologic findings along with the radiographic imaging are reviewed herein. Overall, primary ossification of the lung leading to lung transplant is a rare condition that pulmonologists caring for patients with interstitial lung disease should be aware of as a possible cause of the patient ’s symptoms and lung dysfunction.

Regardless of whether a person has been exposed to asbestos, no one should ignore very low vitamin D levels. People already diagnosed with an asbestos-related cancer, may benefit from a quick check of vitamin D levels. According to the medical literature, up to 80 percent of people with cancer may be vitamin D deficient. People ca...

Abstract There has been an increase in fungal infections in patients with chronic lung disease over the past decades, which is associated with rapidly increasing costs to healthcare systems.An antifungal stewardship team was introduced to a tertiary cardiopulmonary hospital, consisting of a medical mycologist and pharmacy support providing weekly stewardship ward rounds, twice monthly multidisciplinary team meetings and a dedicated weekly outpatient clinic. A database was set up to record the activity of the stewardship team.During the first eighteen months of implementation the antifungal stewardship team had revie...
