Bronchoscopy, bronchoalveolar lavage and a transbronchial lung biopsy established the diagnosis of BOOP. The patient improved consistently on steroids. As in other connective diseases, organizing pneumonia may be one of the early manifestations of polymyalgia rheumatica.  (+info)

Pneumothorax complicating fatal bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia. (2/127)

Bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP) is an uncommon pulmonary disorder, the clinical spectrum of which is variable. We present a fatal case of BOOP, which developed spontaneous pneumothorax, a complication considered rare. Unusual was also the upper lobe distribution of the infiltrates. The histologically diagnosed disease failed to respond to antibiotics and corticosteroids and the 74-year-old patient eventually succumbed with acute respiratory distress syndrome, 50 days after disease onset. Spontaneous pneumothorax should be added to the complications of BOOP, which may adversely affect prognosis.  (+info)

T-cell chronic lymphocytic leukaemia with pulmonary involvement and relapsing BOOP. (3/127)

We report on a case of T-cell chronic lymphocytic leukaemia involving the lung, with clinical, radiological and histological evidence of relapsing bronchiolitis obliterans-organizing pneumonia in a 70-yr-old female. Pulmonary disease was the major clinical manifestation of this chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. The first two episodes of the patient's pulmonary disorder resolved without treatment, and the third episode was treated with cytotoxic agents as part of the leukaemia treatment regimen. Two additional episodes of the pulmonary disorder occurred; both responded to prednisone.  (+info)

Myofibroblasts and S-100 protein positive cells in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and rheumatoid arthritis-associated interstitial pneumonia. (4/127)

The aim of this study was to investigate whether idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) can be distinguished from rheumatoid arthritis (RA)-associated interstitial pneumonia (RA-IP) by means of quantitatively assessing myofibroblasts and S-100 protein positive dendritic cells. Seven patients with IPF and twelve with RA, in whom the pathological findings were consistent with usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) were studied. Antibodies to vimentin, alpha-smooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA) and S-100 protein were used for immunohistochemical studies performed using the streptavidin/biotin/peroxidase complex method, applied to dewaxed sections from each case. In fibrosis of RA-IP, appearance of both vimentin- and alpha-SMA-positive cells, namely myofibroblasts, was widely observed, together with the pathological patterns of honeycombing, UIP and bronchiolitis obliterans-organizing pneumonia (BOOP). Fibrosis, in cases of chronic IPF, was found to be characterized mainly by vimentin-positive but alpha-SMA-negative fibroblasts. Pulmonary tissues from RA-IP patients especially when associated with a BOOP pattern, contained many cells positive for S-100 protein. However, such cells were generally hard to find in cases of IPF. These findings suggests that idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and rheumatoid arthritis-associated interstitial pneumonia can be differentiated from each other, to some extent, based on the appearance of myofibroblasts and the presence of S-100-positive dendritic cells.  (+info)

B7-1, B7-2 and class II MHC molecules in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and bronchiolitis obliterans-organizing pneumonia. (5/127)

Interstitial lung diseases are thought to be associated with the infiltration of activated T-lymphocytes. To induce an effective immune response, antigen-presenting cells have to not only present antigenic peptide with major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules to T-lymphocytes but also express B7 molecules. Therefore, the expression of B7-1, B7-2 and class II MHC molecules was investigated in lung tissues from patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and bronchiolitis obliterans-organizing pneumonia (BOOP), and in normal lung parenchyma as a control, using immunohistochemical localization. B7-1 and B7-2 were aberrantly expressed in bronchiolar and alveolar epithelial cells, and class II MHC molecules were also aberrantly expressed in bronchiolar epithelial cells in IPF. B7-1 was aberrantly expressed in bronchiolar epithelial cells in BOOP. There was no significant difference in the expression of these proteins in alveolar macrophages between IPF and control subjects. However, B7-2 and class II MHC molecule expression in alveolar macrophages was decreased in BOOP compared with that in control subjects. Expression of CD28 and CTLA4, receptors for B7 molecules, was detected in infiltrating lymphocytes in lung tissues in IPF and BOOP. It was concluded that bronchiolar and alveolar epithelial cells may actively participate in the pathophysiology of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis through the aberrant expression of B7 and class II major histocompatibility complex molecules. The dysregulation of these molecules in epithelial cells may lead to the activation of autoreactive T-lymphocytes, which might contribute to the pathogenesis of fibrosing lung diseases.  (+info)

Bronchiolitis obliterans organising pneumonia associated with the use of nitrofurantoin. (6/127)

The spectrum of nitrofurantoin lung injury continues to widen. The case histories are presented of two patients who developed lung disease associated with the use of nitrofurantoin with histological features of bronchiolitis obliterans organising pneumonia (BOOP), a rare but recognised form of drug induced injury. The two middle aged women presented with respiratory symptoms after prolonged treatment with nitrofurantoin. Both had impaired lung function and abnormal computed tomographic scans, and their condition improved when nitrofurantoin was withdrawn and corticosteroid treatment commenced. The favourable outcome in these two patients contrasts with the fatal outcome of the two other reported cases of nitrofurantoin induced BOOP. We suggest that the previous classification of nitrofurantoin induced lung injury into "acute" and "chronic" injury is an oversimplification in view of the wide variety of pathological entities that have subsequently emerged.  (+info)

Air leak syndrome as one of the manifestations of bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia. (7/127)

A 46-year-old man developed respiratory distress with air leak syndrome (ALS), including pneumothorax, pneumomediastinum, and subcutaneous emphysema. Open lung biopsy was performed and revealed the histopathologic evidence of bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP), which responded well to steroid treatment. As far as we know, this appears to be the first case of BOOP presenting with ALS as one of its major complications.  (+info)

Bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia: a distinct pulmonary complication in cystic fibrosis. (8/127)

Organizing pneumonia in cystic fibrosis has hitherto been considered a nonspecific reparative process. We report on an adult patient with cystic fibrosis and histologically proven bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia, who experienced sustained clinical improvement under corticosteroid therapy. This case suggests that bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia may be a distinct pulmonary complication in cystic fibrosis and improve with specific therapy.  (+info)

Cryptogenic organizing pneumonia (COP) is a rare lung condition affecting the small airways (bronchioles) and alveoli (tiny air sacs). It was previously known as idiopathic bronchiolitis obliterans with organizing pneumonia (BOOP).
Bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP) is defined as A disease formerly considered a form of interstitial pneumonia. Its etiology is obscure but it may be associated with toxic fumes, infection, and connective tissue disease. Clinical symptoms include cough, dyspnea and influenza-like symptoms with the development of the usual interstitial pneumonia in many cases. Obstructive symptoms are limited to smokers. There are patchy polypoid masses of intra-alveolar granulation tissue in small airway lumina and alveolar ducts. Organizing refers to unresolved pneumonia (in which the alveolar exudate persists and eventually undergoes fibrosis) in which fibrous tissue forms in the alveoli.[1] ...

The reduced impulses are always referred to in the context of outgoing information from the brain and spinal cord to the organs. This theory neglects the obvious: What about symptoms like pain, headaches, nausea and malaise, which occur in response to increased nociceptive activity, or findings such as high blood pressure that occur in response to increased sympathetic activity? Clearly, the BOOP subluxation model fails miserably when considered in the light of basic neuroscience facts. Notice that I wrote that the BOOP subluxation model fails; nothing was said about failure of the adjustment to be beneficial to the body. BOOP subluxationists become angry and defensive when the BOOP model of subluxation is criticized. Not surprisingly, I received several letters riddled with ad hominem attacks - most unsigned - after my last three articles on the subluxation complex. The reactionary nature of certain BOOP subluxationists is to accuse those who dont buy into the BOOP model of being ...

Chronic allograft dysfunction in form of bronchiolitis obliterans is the most important hurdle to improved longterm survival after clinical lung transplantation to date. Recently, it was observed that the progression of bronchiolitis obliterans in lung transplant recipients might be inhibited by macrolide antibiotics. The authors therefore tested whether macrolide therapy can attenuate fibrous obliteration of airways in an animal model of bronchiolitis obliterans. Rats with heterotopic tracheal allografts were treated intraperitoneally with clarithromycin and compared to untreated transplanted animals with respect to allograft histology and expression of selected cytokines. At day 21 after transplantation, the tracheal allografts of treated animals were free of fibrous material or partially occluded dependent of clarithromycin dosage. Untreated animals had completely obliterated allografts. In treated animals, tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) was down-regulated early (5 days) and late (21 ...

Bronchiolitis obliterans (OB) is a lesion that results when injury to small conducting airways is repaired by a proliferation of fibrous granulation tissue. Bronchiolitis obliterans has emerged as a main cause of morbidity and mortality in the setting of lung and heart-lung transplantation. Endothelin-1 lET-1), initially discovered as a vasoconstrictive peptide, has a mitogenic activity on vascular smooth cells and airway epithelial cells. Overproduction of endothelin has been reported in patients with OB or chronic rejection after lung transplantation. It is still undetermined whether locally overexpressed ET-1 has a potential impact in the ...
The development of bronchiolitis obliterans in the allograft lung does not necessarily mean that it is due to immunologic activity. Numerous causes of small airway scarring have been recognized in lung transplant and non-transplant patients. Particularly relevant to the lung allograft recipient is the role of infection. Numerous infectious agents (to which the immunocompromised lung recipient is exposed) have been documented to cause bronchiolitis obliterans. These include many bacterial infections, viral infections, and some atypical organisms, including mycoplasma and chlamydia. In our practice, if we note histologic OB after a non-rejection related inflammatory process, we are certain to note this etiology in our pathology reports so that patients are not treated as for rejection induced OB. Second the development of acute harvest (ischemic) injury to the lung parenchyma has been associated with airway and interstitial scarring. This is particularly relevant in individuals who experience ...

Knitter Knazi immediately dismissed that tranquil scene as impossible. The scenario made me want to cry just thinking about attempting to direct it.
