PMID:  2122949     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of pulmonary infarction presenting as aseptic cavitation was reported. Basically, the patient suffered from rheumatic heart disease, mitral stenosis and insufficiency, and atrial fibrillation with predominant right heart enlargement. Hemoptysis, chest pain and dyspnea were present. Chest film simulated a thin wall lung abscess. The clinical picture suggested aseptic cavitation, which was confirmed by 99mTc-MAA lung scan.
