Pulmonary cryptococcosis: comparison of clinical and radiographic characteristics in immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients.
This study suggests that pulmonary cryptococcosis usually follows a benign clinical course in immunocompetent patients and often undergo an evolution to cavitary lesions that represent a more aggressive disease nature.
Neoplasms and Related Proliferative Lesions in Control Sprague-Dawley Rats from Carcinogenicity Studies. Historical Data and Diagnostic Considerations
Criteria for the differential diagnoses of selected neoplasms and related lesions are presented and a focal cortical hypertrophy/cystic degeneration of the adrenal lesion of zona fasiculata cells that often degenerate into large cysts is presented.
Contralateral recurrence of primary spontaneous pneumothorax.
Contralateral recurrence of PSP is significantly more common in patients with underweight and blebs/bullae in the contralateral lung, and single-stage bilateral surgery may be considered for these patients to circumvent the need for subsequent anesthetic and operative procedures, and additional hospitalization.
Using Multidetector-Row CT for the Diagnosis of Afferent Loop Syndrome Following Gastroenterostomy Reconstruction
The results suggest that MDCT is a reliable modality for assessing the etiologies of ALS and guiding treatment decisions and found that a fluid-filled C-shaped afferent loop in combination with valvulae conniventes projecting into the lumen was the most common MDCT features of ALS.
Simultaneous bilateral primary spontaneous pneumothorax
This study reviewed cases of PSP to identify the clinical features of SBPSP and found that simultaneous bilateral PSP (SBPSP) is rare and can be life‐threatening if it progresses to tension pneumothorax.
Zinc chloride (smoke bomb) inhalation lung injury: clinical presentations, high-resolution CT findings, and pulmonary function test results.
The majority of patients with ZCSII presented with a predominant parenchymal injury of the lung that was consistent with a restrictive type of functional impairment and a reduction in Dlco rather than with obstructive disease.
Volume-dependent overestimation of spontaneous intracerebral hematoma volume by the ABC/2 formula
The ABC/2 formula significantly overestimates the volume of intracerebral hematoma volume, and a positive association between the estimation error and theVolume of ICH is demonstrated.
