We describe a 67-year-old white woman with a long-standing active rheumatoid arthritis who refused treatment. Chest roentgenograms performed in 2000 revealed a pulmonary nodule in the mid-left lung. Progression of the nodule was followed annually by computerized tomography (CT). In the last CT in 2002, we observed multiple nodules in ...

The authors aim to report the chest CT findings of a patient with disseminated cysticercosis, emphasising the pulmonary and cardiac features. The main finding consisted of multiple pulmonary, cardiac and chest wall nodules. The present case demonstrates that cysticercosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of multiple pulmonary nodules, ...

INTRODUCTION: We report two drowning victims with hypothermic circulatory arrest who were resuscitated with the use of extracorporeal circulation (ECC). The first patient developed severe post-bypass pulmonary oedema and inspired us to use a leucocyte-depletion filter in the second patient to attenuate leucocyte-mediated pulmonary reperfusion injury. METHODS: In the first ...

We sometimes run across difficulty in dissection of the pulmonary arteries due to dense pleural adhesions and bleeding from the pulmonary artery during the video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy. In these cases, conversion of the VATS approach to open thoracotomy is a requisite. The presence of an easy and safe ...

Pentoxifylline exhibits rheological properties that improve microvascular flow and it is widely used in vascular perfusion disorders. It also exhibits marked anti-inflammatory properties by inhibiting tumour necrosis factor alpha production. Thiopental is one of the most widely used drugs for rapid induction of anaesthesia. During experimental studies on the treatment ...

The experiments were conducted to identify the toxin that produces pulmonary oedema in Mesobuthus tamulus (BT) envenomed animals. Crude BT venom was subjected to Sephadex gel filtration (G-75) and the fractions were screened for optical density (OD), neurotoxicity (prolongation of compound action potential in frog sciatic nerve) and lethality. All ...

Pulmonary sarcoidosis was recently reported to show the "sarcoid galaxy" sign, indicating large pulmonary nodules composed of coalescent small nodules. The purpose of this study was to review cases of pulmonary tuberculosis showing CT features indistinguishable from the sarcoid galaxy sign. Large nodules arising from the coalescence of small nodules ...

Re-expansion pulmonary oedema (REPO) after chest tube drainage of pneumothorax is uncommon. We contrast one patient with life threatening against another mildly symptomatic REPO occurring in our emergency department (ED).

We retrospectively evaluated 107 fiberoptic bronchoscopies with and without transbronchial lung biopsy (TBLB) in 98 consecutive patients with haematologic malignancies and pulmonary infiltrates. Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) was performed in 45 and BAL plus TBLB in 62 procedures. There was no procedure-related severe haemorrhage, pneumothorax or death. Infectious aetiology was identified ...

The present international system for staging lung cancer classifies multiple pulmonary nodules present in one pulmonary lobe or in distinct ipsilateral or controlateral pulmonary lobes as stage IIIB and IV, respectively. In our opinion this approach does not guarantee the patient the best choice of therapy. Moreover, some studies support ...
