Viral respiratory tract infections have been implicated as the predominant risk factor for acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD). We aimed to evaluate, longitudinally, the association between upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) caused by viruses and AECOPD. Detection of 18 viruses was performed in naso- and oropharyngeal swabs from 450 COPD patients (Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease stages 2–4) who were followed for a mean of 27 months. Swabs were taken during stable periods (n=1909), at URTI onset (n=391), 10 days after the URTI (n=356) and during...

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 ...

Publication date: Available online 27 September 2019Source: Respiratory Medicine Case ReportsAuthor(s): Daniel Maranatha, Nur Nubli Julian ParadeAbstractEosinophilic chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a COPD phenotype with several clinical characteristics such as eosinophilic airway inflammation, more common in men and less severe COPD. Eosinophilic COPD has more exacerbations but responds well to corticosteroids and bronchodilators. We hereby report the case of a patient who came to us with shortness of breath, fever, wheezing and a cough with yellow phlegm. He had a history of smoking 4.5 pack-year and two e...

ier F Abstract The development of combination antiretroviral therapies (cART) in the mid-nineties has dramatically modified the clinical presentation of critically ill HIV-infected patients. Most of cART-treated patients ageing with controlled HIV replication are nowadays admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) for non-AIDS-related events, mostly bacterial pneumonia and exacerbation of comorbidities, variably impacted by chronic HIV infection - e.g., chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cardiovascular diseases, or solid neoplasms. Today, Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia, cerebral toxoplasmosis, tuberculosis an...

Conclusion: The epidemiological picture of TB showed that males were predominant in our study however female were more affected in younger age group compared to male. More than 51% of the cases were in productive age group which affects the socioeconomic condition of family and society. More than 2/3 of patients were from lower socioeconomic group with low BMI. Therefore improving nutrition and immunity can play an important role. 2.3% of the cases were HIV reactive and were on ART. Co-morbidities like COPD and Diabetes were seen in our study which were statistically significant and had impact on the treatment outcome of r...
