Chest physicians need to be aware about MinIP images, as these are increasingly being used for the evaluation of a wide range of lung diseases in HRCT study of lungs. MinIP images highlight the areas with reduced CT attenuation in the lung parenchyma. This allows prompt and early diagnosis of cystic lung diseases or airway, vascular or parenchymal disorders, which manifest with hypoattenuation, mosaic attenuation or air trapping. MiniP images are therefore useful for accurate pre-operative planning and disease monitoring...

We describe a 21-year-old male with a history of smoking and subacute onset of breathlessness with normal cardiorespiratory examination. The presence of "track marks" and digital infarcts prompted evaluation for infective endocarditis and confrontational history taking revealed anorexia, weight loss over 3 months along with intravenous drug abuse of reconstituted tablets of tapentadol. Echocardiography was normal and blood cultures were sterile; computed tomography showed bilateral, diffuse, small centrilobular nodules with "tree-in-bud" appearance...

Parthasarathi Bhattacharyya
The revelation of interstitial lung disease India registry leads one to consider a revisit into the classification of diffuse parenchymal lung disease that would be clinically relevant for the Indian subcontinent. The author ponders that a simple clinical classification based on steroid sensitivity may be worthwhile.

Video-assisted thoracoscopy (VATS), a minimally invasive surgical technique, has assumed a major role to play in the diagnosis and treatment of certain pleural and pulmonary parenchymal diseases. It is gaining popularity and being increasingly used in the management of thoracic trauma, thoracic surgeries, and pleural diseases. Another rare indication for its use, which is less reported in the literature, is the removal of retained intrathoracic foreign bodies. We report a case highlighting the use of VATS for the removal of retained sewing needle from the pleural cavity of a hemodynamically stable patient, thus evading the need for thoracotomy...

Mediastinal cysts are mostly congenital, but rarely, infections and malignancies can cause cystic degeneration of enlarged mediastinal lymph nodes. Diagnosis is challenging as the presenting symptoms are nonspecific. Surgical resection is the reference modality both for diagnosis and management. Secondary infection of mediastinal bronchogenic cyst with Mycobacterium tuberculosis is rare. Herein, we describe a young male who was managed as bronchial asthma with inhalational bronchodilators and glucocorticoids...

Postintubation tracheal stenosis is preventable yet commonly occurring clinical condition. Early in the disease, nonspecific symptoms may predominate but once the stenosis reaches a critical stage life-threatening respiratory compromise may ensue. Bronchoscopic interventions are an invaluable tool in the management both as a primary treatment and as an interim procedure before the surgery. Optical dilatational tracheoscopy is a safe and minimally invasive procedure in the treatment of benign tracheal stenosis...

We report the case of a 58-year-old female presenting with central airway obstruction leading to airway compromise thrice, first two times from endobronchial growth of typical carcinoid tissue and subsequently from granulation tissue at anastomotic site after left carinal pneumonectomy. Bronchoscopic resection of carcinoid tumor and granulation tissue was performed successfully with electrosurgical snaring through rigid bronchoscope. Cryodebridement using flexible cryoprobe of the tumor was done postembolization and of the remnant granulation tissue without any complication...

Context: Magnesium (Mg) is an intracellular cation which takes part in various functions including smooth muscle contractility. Studies have shown that serum Mg level has no significant effect on asthma severity. There are only sparse data on the effect of serum Mg level on asthma control. Aims: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of serum Mg level on asthma control. Settings and Design: This hospital-based cross-sectional study was conducted at the Department of Respiratory Medicine, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal...

Introduction: Amplification of airway inflammation and its destruction due to oxidative stress is a major step in the pathogenesis of chronic obstruction pulmonary disease (COPD). Exhaled carbon monoxide (eCO) may be quantified to evaluate the airway inflammation and oxidative stress in such patients. Objectives: To assess the disease severity of COPD and treatment response by measuring eCO as a biomarker. Materials and Methods: COPD patients diagnosed according to the global initiative for chronic obstructive lung disease guidelines and healthy individuals as controls were selected...

Unnati Desai, Jyotsna M Joshi
Background: Intercostal chest drainage is required for varied lung diseases with the pleural involvement. While the conventional method of intercostal drainage (ICD) insertion with the bulky underwater drain (UWD) was the gold standard for management, it had numerous disadvantages. It was time and again challenged with better ambulatory methods, although the documentation and continued use of the same are rare in practice. We studied the efficacy of ambulatory chest drainage (ACD) with pigtail and urosac against the conventional drainage methods (ICD-UWD) at a tertiary care center...
