Unusual pulmonary reactions to oily propyliodone (Dionosil) in bronchography.


Severe reactions to oily propyliodone are rare. Side-effects are usually mild and self-limiting. Three cases are reported of early pulmonary reactions, the cause of which may be a chemical pneumonitis or possibly an allergic response to one of the components of the contrast medium. There was a good response to corticosteroid therapy in all three patients.
