ConclusionsMDCTA provides useful information for identifying the anatomical characteristics of bleeding-related BAs and nonbronchial systemic arteries for the management of patients with severe hemoptysis. However, MDCTA could not determine the individuals who need BAE through measuring diameter of BAs.

AbstractA 24-year-old male presented with history of recurrent unresolving haemoptysis since 1.5  years. He underwent repeated hospitalisation. Initial computed tomography (CT) scan was suggestive of pneumonitis of the left lower lobe and was treated conservatively with broad-spectrum antibiotics. He had no past history of pulmonary tuberculosis. On presentation at our hospital, a repeat CT pu lmonary angiogram was done which showed a low attenuating mass lesion in the left lower lobe with eccentric calcification supplied by branches from the left pulmonary artery. Few dot-like enhancing pulmonary veins are noted with...

Abstract: Angiosarcoma with pulmonary metastasis is a rare, fatal disease that often presents with multiple pulmonary nodules and diffuse alveolar hemorrhage. We herein review the detailed clinical characteristics of pulmonary metastatic angiosarcoma and determine a reasonable diagnostic strategy. The medical records of 11 patients with pulmonary angiosarcoma were reviewed. The mean age of the patients was 45.7 years (range, 30–71 years). All patients were male. The most common symptom was hemoptysis (8/11). Common initial misdiagnoses were tuberculosis (5/11), vasculitis (2/11), nontuberculous infectious disease (...

CONCLUSION: The high number of patients presenting for CTPA who were HIV infected (and also infected with TB) highlights that PE evaluation should include severity/extent of the disease, as these patients may have more severe disease in specific lung lobes. The use of a validated scoring system, such as the Qanadli score, when reporting PE may have a profound effect on patient risk stratification, management and prognosis and would also provide a system for collecting larger volumes of data for analysis.

Conclusion MDCT angiography is a useful and non invasive method that allows a rapid and detailed identification of abnormal vasculature responsible for hemoptysis in patients with lung cancer. MDCT-generated virtual bronchoscopy is an accurate, and non invasive method for evaluating obstructions, endoluminal masses, and external compressions in patients with hemoptysis due to lung cancer.

Conclusion Our results confirm that MDCT angiography is a useful method to identify and depict the bronchial arteries and to predict the presence of nonbronchial systemic vessels that supply a parenchymal lesion. MDCT angiography allows a rapid and detailed identification of abnormal vasculature and provides a precise road map which can be used to guide therapeutic arterial embolization.

This study is a case report of a 33-year-old Bangladeshi male with ulcerative colitis treated with oral corticosteroids and azathioprine who was referred to our department with a diagnosis of central serous chorioretinopathy. Serological tests, the Mantoux skin test, complete ophthalmologic examination, ocular fundus photography, fundus fluorescein angiography, and SD-OCT scans were performed. The ophthalmological inflammatory pattern and serological investigations provided an early diagnosis of ocular tuberculosis. Systemic ATT led to significant improvement and resolution of the ocular inflammation. SD-OCT was a useful n...

Conclusion: Our case emphasizes that patients with severe pulmonary tuberculosis are at risk of developing thromboembolism and superadded infections. It should be noted that even though starting anti tuberculosis drugs improved haemostatic disturbances, achieving the target International Normalizing Ratio was difficult due to drug interactions. Therefore these patients should be closely followed up to prevent complications and death from pulmonary embolism.
