Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia has emerged as a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients with and without AIDS. To determine differences in P. carinii pneumonia in patients with and without AIDS, the P. carinii parasite numbers, lung inflammatory cell populations, gas exchange, and survival were assessed in a series of 75 consecutive patients with P. carinii pneumonia. Bronchoalveolar lavage was used to quantify the parasite and inflammatory cell numbers in… CONTINUE READING
