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...

Q-Fever is a worldwide zoonosis caused by Coxiella burnetti. C. burnetti is an obligate intracellular parasite. It lives in phagolysosome of the host cell. By its infection of the sensitive persons develops the acute noncharacteristic disease, which passes noncharacteristically, with the appearance of higher temperature, headache, fever, weakness of the organism or by the appearance of symptoms of the undifferentiated infection of the upper parties of the respiratory system. In the course of the infection is being developed the intersticial pneumonia, what is the reason of the infected hospitalization...

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...

BACKGROUND: Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia is regarded as a community-acquired pneumonia, rarely requiring hospitalization, with sporadic cases or limited outbreaks occurring after close contacts with an infected patient. Few reports mention M pneumoniae pneumonia acquired during hospitalization. PATIENTS AND METHODS: M pneumoniae was diagnosed in patients who developed pneumonia following perioperative and postoperative assisted ventilation by the isolation of M pneumoniae from bronchial washing, the detection of M pneumoniae DNA from bronchial washing, and serologic testing for the presence of specific immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies...

BACKGROUND: The object of our research is to analyse the microbiological results of the samples which have been obtained by means of fibronchoscopy (FB) from HIV positive patients from 1991 until 1993. METHODS: Sixty fibrobronchoscopies were carried out on fifty-seven HIV positive patients. In every case, samples of bronchoaspirate (BAS), bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and telescoping plugged catheter (TPC) were cultured; the last two in a quantitative way. Pneumocystis carinii was investigated in BAL by means of immunofluorescence with monoclonal antibodies...

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...
