Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Round pneumonia is a rare manifestation of lower respiratory tract infection in adults. Previous reports emphasize that this entity is typically a mild, easily treatable illness that often masquerades radiographically as a neoplasm. We present two cases of round pneumonia, in patients with abnormal immunity, that progressed rapidly to life-threatening septic shock and respiratory failure.
