The presenting chest X-ray pattern (airspace pneumonia, interstitial infiltrate and bronchopneumonia), extension (number of lobes involved, unilateral or bilaterality patches) and physical examination (respiratory rate, heart rate, blood pressure and respiratory signs such as consolidation, rales, reduced breath sounds, rhonchi, or evidence of pleuritis or effusion) were also recorded.
Thoracic X-ray revealed dense interstitial infiltrate with reticular zones in both pulmonary fields (Photograph 5).
(32,34) In other patients the distinction hinges on identifying areas away from the fibrosis that demonstrate the classic combination of a cellular, bronchiolocentric, lymphocyte-rich, interstitial infiltrate with the characteristic pattern of associated granulomatous inflammation.
After the completion of amphotericin B, a chest radiograph showed resolution of the effusion and interstitial infiltrate with some remaining patchy consolidation in the upper lobe of the left lung (Figure 4).
While LIP shows a predominantly interstitial infiltrate of T cells (CD3+), follicular bronchiolitis consists of peribronchial reactive lymphoid follicles expressing B-cell markers ([CD20.sup.+]).
A chest radiograph taken at admission revealed a right upper lobe consolidation with areas of cavitation and a diffuse interstitial infiltrate.
The intraluminal plugs are patchy and are composed of fibroblasts and myofibroblasts in a loose connective tissue with an associated mild interstitial infiltrate of lymphocytes, plasma cells, and histiocytes.
(A) Chest radiograph showing bilateral interstitial infiltrates with areas of confluence in the lower zones.
For example, amiodarone toxicity can be suspected in patients who are taking amiodarone and whose biopsies show intraalveolar foamy macrophages in combination with organizing pneumonia, diffuse alveolar damage, or cellular interstitial infiltrates. Transbronchial lung biopsies may also play a role in the diagnosis of methotrexate toxicity, nitrofurantoin-induced interstitial pneumonia, and eosinophilic pneumonia.
(14) and ILD was confirmed by histopathology or by the detection of interstitial infiltrates after chest radiography (X-ray generator, 0.6/1.2 P324DK-125, Shimadzu Corporation, Kyoto, Japan, and X-ray photoreceiver, flat panel detector CALNEO-U, Fujifilm Medical, Tokyo, Japan) or high-resolution computed tomography (CT, Aquilion ONE TSX-301C/3A, Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation, Otawara City, Tochigi-ken Japan).
Chest x-ray findings in patients with pneumonia can reveal either lobar consolidation or interstitial infiltrates.
Chest X-ray showed bilateral interstitial infiltrates (Figure 1).
