intersticial lung disease

Bruno Guedes Baldi, Carlos Roberto Ribeiro Carvalho, Olívia Meira Dias, Edson Marchiori, Bruno Hochhegger
Diffuse cystic lung diseases are characterized by cysts in more than one lung lobe, the cysts originating from various mechanisms, including the expansion of the distal airspaces due to airway obstruction, necrosis of the airway walls, and parenchymal destruction. The progression of these diseases is variable. One essential tool in the evaluation of these diseases is HRCT, because it improves the characterization of pulmonary cysts (including their distribution, size, and length) and the evaluation of the regularity of the cyst wall, as well as the identification of associated pulmonary and extrapulmonary lesions...

Pleuroparenchymal fibroelastosis (PPFE) is a rare lung disease. It can be idiopathic or associated with any one of various conditions. To our knowledge, this is the first report of two cases of PPFE in Brazil. Our first patient presented with pleural and subpleural fibrosis in the upper lobes; a spiculated nodule in the left upper lobe; and a mild reticular pattern in the lower lobes. Surgical lung biopsy revealed PPFE in the upper lobes, including the nodule, and unclassified interstitial pneumonia in the left lower lobe...

Objective: To describe diagnostic and treatment aspects of hard metal lung disease (HMLD) and to review the current literature on the topic. Methods: This was a retrospective study based on the medical records of patients treated at the Occupational Respiratory Diseases Clinic of the Instituto do Coração, in the city of São Paulo, Brazil, between 2010 and 2013. Results: Of 320 patients treated during the study period, 5 (1.56%) were diagnosed with HMLD...

Antysynthetase syndrome is considered as a group ofidiopathic inflammatory myositis with charcteristic serologic hallmark--antibodies which recognise the aminoacyl-tRNA synthetasses (ARS). Clinical picture of those patients contains myositis and/or intersticial lung disease (ILD) and/or arthritis and/or fever and/or Raynaud phenomenon and sometimes characteristic look of mechanic's hands. Myositis can be overt, sometimes even absent, while IBP is major cause of morbidity and determines the outcome of the disease...

INTRODUCTION: Hantavirus cardiopulmonary syndrome (HCPS) is an acute infectious disease characterized by sudden cardiorespiratory failure and high mortality, caused by a RNA virus of the genus Hantavirus, family Bunyaviridae, 15% of Chilean cases have been detected in the Araucania Region. OBJECTIVE: To determine in fatal cases of HCPS, clinical and morphological characteristics. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Descriptive-retrospective analysis of seven fatal cases with postmortem study of HCPS, attended between 1997 and 2009 at the Hospital of Temuco, Chile...

The authors report a clinical case of a woman who had a 3 years diagnosis of hipersensitivity pneumonitis based on intersticial lung disease without other manifestations. The diagnosis of antisynthetase syndrome was made three years after the initial symptoms upon the onset of systemic manifestations with articular involvement, myositis and determination of anti-PL 7 antibodies. In this syndrome, the isolated pulmonary involvement is rare.

UNLABELLED: Chlamydia trachomatis infection is adquired by the newborn infant during the delivery, 25 to 50% of them may develop conjunctivitis and 10 to 20% pneumonia. BACKGROUND: To verify the incidence of ocular infection by C. trachomatis in the newborn infants with conjunctivitis. To observe the association between ocular infection and intersticial pneumonia.-Study the epidemiological aspects and laboratorial methods of criterial diagnosis. CASUISTICS AND METHODS: We studied the newborn infants admitted in the intensive neonatal care with diagnostic of conjunctivitis and/or interstitial pneumonia during the period of ten years...

The role of active and passive factors involved in the genesis of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) is analyzed in a group of eighty patients with several cardiopathies and pneumopathies. The group include: 20 patients with Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (NODC), 20 with Diffuse intersticial pneumopathy (NI), 12 with Cardiorespiratory Syndrome of the grossly obese (OB), 6 with Pulmonary Embolism (TEP), 6 with Mitral Stenosis (CRI), 5 with Hypertensive Ventricular Septal Defect (CIV + HAP) and 11 patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension of Unknown etiology (HAP-ED)...

Complex hygienic, clinical and epidemiologic studies were carried out at 2 enterprises producing asbestos-technical products. It was established that the workers engaged in the production of such products were exposed to relatively low levels of asbestos-containing dust. The course, complications and outcome of asbestos-associated fibrosis were studied in 110 patients. The study revealed that asbestosis was characterized by its slowly progressing development. Asbestosis complications included lung tuberculosis, chronic intersticial pneumonia, and lung cancer...

Left heart diseases, in particular mitral stenosis, are often associated with anatomic and functional alterations of the lung. According to the pulmonary structures involved they could be named chronic secondary intersticial and vascular lung diseases. Congenital heart diseases with pre- or post-tricuspid shunts are also often associated with anatomic and functional alterations of the lung. This condition also constitutes a chronic secondary vascular lung disease (atrial septal defect) or a chronic primary vascular lung disease ( ventricular septal defect, patent ductus arteriosus)...
