The exogenous lipoid pneumonia, uncommon in adults, is the result of the inhalation and/or aspiration of lipid material into the tracheobronchial tree. This is often confused with bacterial pneumonia and pulmonary tuberculosis due to a nonspecific clinical and radiologic picture. It presents acutely or chronically and may result in pulmonary fibrosis. We describe here a case of lipoid pneumonia in a gas station attendant who siphoned gasoline to fill motorcycles; he was hospitalized due to prese...

Background The assessment of the extent of silicosis on chest radiographs is subjective and could be more standardized by using computed tomography (CT) quantification methods. We propose a semiautomatic method of quantifying the anatomical lung damage (LD) (the sum of the emphysema and large opacities volumes) measured by CT densitovolumetry in complicated silicosis.

Partial bowel obstruction is a serious complication of ascariasis infestation generally treated with mineral oil. This prospective study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of multiple bronchoalveolar lavages (BAL) as a therapeutic strategy for reducing lung inflammation of lipoid pneumonia associated with ascariasis. The study included five children (mean age 25 months) with partial small-bowel obstruction by Ascaris lumbricoides, who underwent diagnostic bronchoalveolar lavage for assessment of ref...

Man-made vitreous fibers (MMVFs), also called man-made mineral fibers, represent a group of manufactured fibers that includes rock wool, slag wool, glass wool, glass continuous filaments, glass microfibers, and refractory ceramic fibers (Baan and Grosse 2004; De Vuyst et al. 1995). The uses of MMVFs are mainly related to thermal and acoustic insulation (Hesterberg and Hart 2001). Because past inhalation of asbestos could be associated with lung diseases, concerns have been raised about possible ...

OBJECTIVE: To present aspects of the evolution of lipoid pneumonia in children, based on clinical, radiological and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid findings, emphasizing the importance of bronchoalveolar lavage for the diagnosis and treatment. METHODS: We included 28 children, with a mean age of 20 months (range, 1-108 months), diagnosed with chronic pneumonia refractory to antimicrobial therapy, with TB or with a combination of the two. Most of the children had at least one risk factor for aspirat...

Objective To assess the potential role of multiple bronchoalveolar lavages (BALs) in the treatment of children with lipoid pneumonia (LP). Materials and Methods This prospective study included 10 children (7 female, 3 male) with LP secondary to mineral oil aspiration. The age ranged from 3 months to 7 years and 1–60 days history of mineral oil intake, with a 6 months clinic follow-up. High-resolution computer tomography (CT) was performed 1–7 days prior to treatment and 2–20 days after the last ...

Silicosis is a disease caused by inhalation and deposition of crystalline silica that produces a fibrous tissue reaction. Bronchoalveolar lavage is a noninvasive technique that allows identifying particles, thus characterizing exposure to mineral dust. The aim of this work was to study bronchoalveolar lavage as a mean of estimating the amount of alveolar particles in different forms of silicosis. Bronchoalveolar lavage was carried out in 27 silicotic pacients with simple (n = 12), complicated (n...

INTRODUCAO: O comprometimento pulmonar e frequente na leptospirose e caracteriza-se por hemoptise, dispneia e infiltrados pulmonares bilaterais no radiograma de torax. Esses achados podem ser compativeis com hemorragia alveolar, previamente descrita por alguns autores em autopsias e em lavado broncoalveolar. OBJETIVO: Avaliar a presenca de hemorragia alveolar, diagnosticada por meio do lavado broncoalveolar, em pacientes portadores de leptospirose com alteracoes pulmonares, enfatizando-se a impo...
