Cavitation following bland pulmonary infarction is not commonly considered in the differential diagnosis of cavitary lung disease. In a 4-year period we have found 10 cases of cavitating pulmonary infarction (CPI) by reviewing serial chest radiographs from autopsies with pulmonary infarction and in all cases with positive ventilation-perfusion lung scans. ...
Moreno A J - - 1985
Eight cases of pulmonary embolism were evaluated with Ga-67 citrate scintigraphy. Of the eight patients, all but one showed evidence of abnormal Ga-67 citrate localization within involved regions of the lung as demonstrated by ventilation-perfusion lung scintigraphy. The sole patient who did not demonstrate Ga-67 localization within the lung had ...
Lillo-Gil R - - 1985
We describe a case of pulmonary sarcoma appearing as a cyst in the lower lobe. A review of the literature on cavities and malignancies of the lung shows that lung cavities with a wall thickness of 4 mm or less were benign in 92% of the cases. After investigation, a ...

Pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis is a rare disease of unknown cause in which calcium phosphate microliths are deposited throughout the lungs. These deposits are of sufficient density to be almost diagnostic on chest roentgenograms. The Mayo Clinic experience with 8 patients is added to the approximately 120 cases reported in the ...
Murphy K - - 1983
Unilateral pulmonary edema has been associated with a variety of clinical disorders including post re-expansion of a pneumothorax. We present a case of unilateral pulmonary edema following chest tube drainage of a spontaneous pneumothorax. A literature review of this complication is reported, the pathophysiology explored and therapeutic measures examined.
Herman S J - - 1982
We report a patient with multiple pulmonary kaolin granulomas. The granulomas developed secondary to the use of a liquid kaolin suspension for pleural poudrage to treat recurrent spontaneous pneumothoraces. Presumably the kaolin entered the lung through pleuro-alveolar or pleuro-bronchial openings. Kaolin pneumoconiosis is generally regarded as an inhalational pneumoconiosis. However, ...
Demicco W A - - 1982
We present five cases of biopsy proven pulmonary sarcoidosis with initial radiographic localisation of disease to one lung. Four of the cases later demonstrated more typical diffuse bilateral pulmonary infiltrates. Clinical and pulmonary function data of these patients are presented. Although localised pulmonary involvement by Sarcoidosis may not be uncommon, ...
Ball D G - - 1982
A case of Hodgkin's disease occurred with pulmonary involvement as the initial feature. The disease was initially seen clinically and roentgenographically as a diffuse pulmonary infiltrate. To our knowledge, the pattern of diffuse pneumonic involvement without intrathoracic lymphadenopathy at presentation has been reported only in one other case. Differentiation of ...

Sawamura K - - 1982
We reported one case of a primary liposarcoma of the lung which has been reported only in six cases to date worldwide, and we added some documented study. A 49-year-old female complained of exertional dyspnea with about 100 ml of hemoptysis. The chest X ray showed a coin lesion at ...
Tsung S H - - 1982
A case of pulmonary dirofilariasis in a 69-year-old woman is presented. A review of the literature revealed 56 documented cases. As in most cases of pulmonary dirofilariasis, our patient presented roentgenologically a single noncalcified coin lesion and required thoracotomy for diagnosis. The gross and histologic characteristics of the lesion, the ...
Dvorák E - - 1982
Progressive tendencies in curative radiation therapy approach in the treatment of bronchogenic carcinoma will generally prolong a treatment course and modify the manifestation of radiation pneumonitis. There will probably be a tendency for an earlier onset of its acute phase, especially if the irradiated lung was atelectatic with or without ...
Thurlbeck W M - - 1981
Two hundred autopsies were investigated to determine the correlation between the clinical and pathological diagnoses in three categories--major underlying disease, cause of death and significant incidental pulmonary findings. There was concurrence in diagnosis of the major underlying disease in 76% of cases, with 12% of disagreements being considered minor and ...
Patterson R - - 1981
Two cases of hypersensitivity lung disease apparently caused by home environment contamination with Cephalosporium have been identified.
