Pulmonary lesions are the commonest and prognostically unfavourable visceral pathology in Wegener's granulomatosis. The author discusses clinically and reongenologically detectable lesions associated with this systemic vasculitis with special reference to its most severe forms (alveolar bleeding and infectious complications frequently caused by active(More)
The data obtained suggest an important role of the FRES and ET-1 in progressing of the lung interstitial diseases; they can be used as diagnostic criteria of the disease activity, risk of pulmonary hypertension, and extra-pulmonary manifestations.
AIM To determine the role of enhanced blood coagulation in pathogenesis of pulmonary hypertension (PH) at an early stage of fibrosing alveolitis (FA). MATERIAL AND METHODS Clinical, functional, roentgenological, coagulation and immunological examinations were performed in 17 patients with idiopathic FA (IFA), in 6 patients with exogenic allergic(More)
Clinical observation with morphological verification of the above combination in a 48-year-old patient is presented. Large cysts, dystelectasia, fibrosis and smooth muscle proliferation were found in the lungs. The characteristic feature of smooth muscle cells was their differentiation in the direction of myofibroblasts and expression of antigen interacting(More)
AIM To ascertain the role of some neurohumoral factors--nitric oxide (NO), ACE, histamine--in development of pulmonary hypertension (PH) in patients with interstitial lung diseases (ILD). MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 32 ILD patients were examined. Of them 14 had idiopathic fibrosing alveolitis (IFA), 6 had exogenous allergic alveolitis (EAA) and 12(More)
AIM To study a plasmic concentration of the brain natriuretic peptide (BNUP) in patients with interstitial pulmonary disease (IPD) as a possible diagnostic parameter in pulmonary hypertension (PH). MATERIAL AND METHODS Plasmic BNUP concentration, external respiration function were studied in 24 patients with IPD. The following tests were also made: 6-min(More)
Sarcoidosis is a group of diseases with chronic immune inflammation and granulomas formation in the lung, lymph nodes, and others organs. Under progress of disease remodeling of the lung tissue occurs and at 20-25% of patient with sarcoidosis lung fibrosis is developed. We studied biopsies from 50 patients with sarcoidosis and 10 biopsies of pathological(More)
