Intratumoral lung abscess is considered a fatal condition and surgical procedures for intratumoral lung abscesses have sometimes been performed. Our retrospective study demonstrates that surgical procedures for advanced-stage NSCLC patients with intratumoral lung abscesses led to satisfactory post-operative mortality rates (0.0%) and acceptable prognoses, although the post-operative morbidity rate was a little high. No pre-operative, intra-operative, or post-operative prognostic factors were identified in our univariate analyses.. Davis et al. [7] reported intratumoral lung abscesses to be secondary lung abscesses and, although rare, they are potentially refractory and serious. Ishida et al. [5] reported cases of intratumoral lung abscesses after bronchoscopy and this was considered the main reason for the development of intratumoral lung abscesses. In the present study, 8 intratumoral lung abscesses were detected after bronchoscopic biopsy. Other reasons included bronchial obstruction due to ...
Most cases of pleural empyema are caused by pulmonary infections, which are usually combined with pneumonia or lung abscess. The mortality of patients with pleural empyema remains high (up to 20%). It also contributes to higher hospital costs and longer hospital stays. We studied pleural empyema with combined lung abscess to determine if abscess was associated with mortality. From January 2004 to December 2006, we retrospectively reviewed 259 patients diagnosed with pleural empyema who received thoracscopic decortications of the pleura in a single medical center. We evaluated their clinical data and analyzed their chest computed tomography scans. Outcomes of pleural empyema were compared between groups with and without lung abscess. Twenty-two pleural empyema patients had lung abscesses. Clinical data showed significantly higher incidences in the lung abscess group of pre-operative leukocytosis, need for an intensive care unit stay and mortality. Patients with pleural empyema and lung abscess have
Pulmonary abscess or lung abscess is a lung infection which destroys the lung parenchyma leading to cavitations and central necrosis in localised areas formed by thick-walled purulent material. It can be primary or secondary. Lung abscesses can occur at any age, but it seems that paediatric pulmonary abscess morbidity is lower than in adults. We present the case of a one year and 5-month-old male child admitted to our clinic for fever, loss of appetite and an overall altered general status. Laboratory tests revealed elevated inflammatory biomarkers, leukocytosis with neutrophilia, anaemia, thrombocytosis, low serum iron concentration and increased lactate dehydrogenase level. Despite wide-spectrum antibiotic therapy, the patients progress remained poor after seven days of treatment and a CT scan established the diagnosis of a large lung abscess. Despite changing the antibiotic therapy, surgical intervention was eventually needed. There was a slow but steady improvement and eventually, the ...
The most common cause of a lung abscess is when microorganisms from the mouth pass through the respiratory tract to reach the lung tissue. This causes aspiration pneumonia and the death and destruction of the lung tissue (necrotizing pneumonia) progresses to abscess formation. It is more likely to occur if the patient has poor oral hygiene, several tooth cavities, gingivitis or periodontitis.. Aspiration occurs in a person who is intoxicated (alcohol, narcotic drugs) or sedated (anesthesia, opioid painkillers). Those with neurological disorders, particularly the elderly, and other causes of swallowing difficulties (dysphagia) are more prone to aspiration pneumonia. Saliva, food or inhaled foreign objects may carry these pathogenic microorganisms into the respiratory system. Most cases are due to anaerobic bacteria although mixed bacteria (anaerobic and aerobic) account for almost half of all cases. Other pathogens include fungi, mycobacteria and parasites.. A lung abscess may also be caused by ...
Broad spectrum antibiotic to cover mixed flora is the mainstay of treatment. Pulmonary physiotherapy and postural drainage are also important. Surgical procedures are required in selective patients for drainage or pulmonary resection. the treatment is divided according to the type of abscess acute or chronic if its acute the treatment is a- antibiotics: if anaerobic -, metronidazole or clindamycin if aerobic-, B-lactams, cephalosporins if MRSA or Staph infection -, vancomycin or linezolide b- postural drainage and chest physiotherapy c- bronchoscopy: is used for the following cases: 1-aspiration or instillation of antibiotics 2- patients with atypical presentation suspected of having underlying foreign body or malignancy ...

Since the symptoms of a lung abscess are similar to pneumonia and other lung disorders, testing must be carried out to produce a definitive diagnosis. Most abscesses can be identified in a chest x-ray, though sometimes computed tomography (CT) scans are necessary. CT scans can also sometimes provide information regarding the cause of the condition. In other cases, sputum smears and cultures can be helpful in determining the cause of an abscess. However, because of the microorganisms that are normally present in the mouth and throat, expectorated sputum is not useful for analyses, so that samples must be obtained via specialized techniques. As a result, some sputum tests are often not carried out unless traditional abscess treatments are ineffective.

title:A Study Profile of Lung Abscess Patient Coming to Tertiary Care Center Ahmedabad. Author:Anil Gupta, Nilesh Dutt. Keywords:Lung Abscess, Tuberculosis, Fungal infection. Type:Original Article. Abstract:Introduction: In the strict sense, all lesions sue to suppuration and necrosis in the substance of the lung should rank as abscess. In this study are abscesses due to tuberculosis, fungal infections, necrosis in malignant tumours and infected cysts. The mortality and morbidity rates for lung abscess decreased significantly with advent of modern antibiotic therapy beginning with discovery and use of penicillin in mid 1940s. Newer antibiotics have extended the armamentarium and further reduced the mortality and morbidity rates. Material and Methods: 25 patients presenting to the Pulmonary Medicine Department, Smt.N.H.L Municipal Medical College, shardaben hospital saraspur Ahmadabad, who were suffering from lung abcess, were studied.Various parameters considered included age, sex, Occupation ...
Granuloma containing necrotic debris in the center and surrounded by macrophages, giant cells, and epithelioid cells in the periphery (H&E stain, X200). Bacteriological methods and Results. Abscess contents from different areas of the lungs were aseptically collected and plated on blood agar and MacConkey media, and incubated aerobically at 37°C. Culture plates were examined daily for 3 days. The growth was classified as heavy, moderate, and light. Three or less colonies were considered insignificant, and probably contaminants. The bacteria were identified based on colony morphology, Gram stain, classic biochemical tests, CAMP test (Quinn et al., 1994, Funke and Bernard, 2011), and by using a commercial bacterial identification system: "API Coryne" (bioMerieux Inc., Durham, NC, USA). Antimicrobial susceptibility tests were done against 12 drugs using the disk diffusion method as recommended by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI), and the zone sizes were interpreted as per ...

Objective: To relate the experience of the staff at a health care facility specializing in the management of patients with aspiration lung abscess. Methods: Diagnostic aspects and therapeutic results of 252 consecutive cases of lung abscess seen in patients hospitalized between 1968 and 2004. Results: Of the 252 patients, 209 were male, and 43 were female. The mean age was 41.4 years, and 70.2% were alcoholic. Cough, expectoration, fever and overall poor health were seen over 97% of patients. Chest pain was reported by 64%, 30.2% presented digital clubbing, 82.5% had dental disease, 78.6% reported having lost consciousness at least once, and 67.5% presented foul smelling sputum. In 85.3% of the patients, the lung lesions were located either in the posterior segments of the upper lobe or in the superior segments of the lower lobe, and 96.8% were unilateral. Concomitant pleural empyema was seen in 24 (9.5%) of the patients. Mixed flora was identified in the bronchopulmonary or pleural secretions ...
It is difficult to differentiate an unresolved pneumonia from an encapsulated empyema in which the retained fluid is under pressure. It is also difficult, at times, to differentiate either of the two conditions mentioned above from a lung tumor. It is usually necessary to take into consideration not only the physical findings and x-ray examination, but the history of onset before an absolute diagnosis can be made.. Middle lobe pneumonia, without involvement of the remainder of the lung, is a rare condition,1 and may terminate in various ways. It may resolve and clear up in a very short time, or ...

Kostmann syndrome is a group of diseases that affect myelopoiesis, causing a congenital form of neutropenia (severe congenital neutropenia [SCN]), usually without other physical malformations. SCN manifests in infancy with life-threatening bacterial infections. Most cases of SCN respond to treatment with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (filgrastim), which increases the neutrophil count and decreases the severity and frequency of infections. Although this treatment has significantly improved survival, people with SCN are at risk of long-term complications such as hematopoietic clonal disorders (myelodysplastic syndrome, acute myeloid leukemia). Kostmann disease (SCN3), the initial subtype recognized, was clinically described in 1956. This type has an autosomal recessive inheritance pattern, whereas the most common subtype of Kostmann syndrome, SCN1, shows autosomal dominant inheritance. Infants with SCN have frequent infections: 50% have a significant infection within 1 month, most others ...
The thrombus is made up of made up of clotted blood, dead white blood cells, bacteria and other cells. Once formed, these thrombi can detach from the lining of the vena cava (they are then called emboli) and are carried in the bloodstream through to smaller blood vessels, where they become stuck. The most common site is in the lungs. Emboli in the lungs result in chronic pneumonia and the development of multiple lung abscesses.. ...

In the latest Endgames picture quiz, a 41 year old man presents to the emergency department with a two week history of worsening shortness of breath, productive cough, intermittent fever, night sweats, and non-pleuritic pain in the right side of the chest wall. He was diagnosed with a pulmonary abcess secondary to community acquired pneumonia. There are no published guidelines regarding the management of pulmonary abscess, which includes antibiotics that are in part chosen according to clinical judgment rather than a sound evidence base.. Doctors are well aware that practising medicine often means making decisions under conditions of great uncertainty. Fortunately, the evidence base of treatments is constantly evolving, and we need it to evolve in order to keep improving patient care. But doctors may be mislead if, due to lack of disclosure, they dont have access to the complete evidence base for most drugs in current use. Both patients and doctors may have reason to smile this week, as the BMJ ...

Ordinarily, I would just wait it out, but Im exhausted, cant really get a full breath, and the stuff Im coughing up tastes like bleach. I swear, I havent been inhaling or gargling bleach. I do have an appointment to see my doctor on Wednesday (the earliest I could get in,) but I was wondering if anyone else had had these symptoms and could tell me what caused them, so I can quit Googling medical conditions and diagnosing myself with lung abscesses and tuberculosis ...
I would want you as my doctor. I just wouldnt want your life," I said to the thoracic surgeon. It was after midnight and we were standing in the intensive care unit. I, having urgently intubated a critically ill patient; he, having finished a surgery on a patient we shared. This particular patient had had a lung abscess that ruptured and infected his chest. Dr. Mike Collins had taken him to the operating room to clear out the infection. The patient was now septic and had been transferred to the ICU and Mike had come to tell me about him.. Im a pulmonary and critical care doctor, and that means that in a large hospital, like Intermountain Medical Center with over 80 ICU beds, we have two intensivists in-house, 24/7. It also means that the handful of doctors who do this for a living spend the night in the hospital several times a month. Most of us do this by working our "regular" job during the day and staying for the full 24 hours, many of us stay on for 36. But what it also means for us is ...

An experimental research on the cavitating flow round an axisymmetric body with ventilation were conducted and depicted. The aim is to study the cavitation influences to hydrodynamic forces during the course of ventilated cavitation. The problem of reducing drag by ventilated cavitation was mainly discussed. A model and a set of experimental setting were designed according to the requirement and intention of the experiment, and then several series of experiments were did in a gravity water tunnel. During the courses a three component force balance and a computer based data acquisition system were used to measure the hydrodynamic forces on the model. In the experiment, two key problems were expected to be resolved, one was how to get stable airflow, the other was how to collect and deal with the experimental data correctly. The first problem was solved by using the filter/booster component of 1127/1128 air velocity regulator to refit the ventilated setting. The second problem was solved by adapting
The safe and reliable operation of high pressure test stands for rocket engine and component testing places an increased emphasis on the performance of control valves and flow metering devices. In this paper, we present high fidelity computational analyses of cavitating venturi-type cryogenic control valves used to support rocket engine and component testing. The computational analyses are carried out with a generalized multi-phase formulation for cavitation in fluids operating in regimes where thermodynamic effects become important. The thermal effects and the accompanying property variations due to phase change are modeled rigorously. Thermal equilibrium is assumed and fluid thermodynamic properties are specified along the saturation line using the NIST-12 databank. The thermodynamic cavitation framework has been validated against experimental data of Hord [1] for hydrofoils operating in liquid nitrogen and liquid hydrogen. In this paper, we will discuss performance losses related to cryogenic ...
