BACKGROUND Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) typically includes neutrophilic airway inflammation and eosinophilic inflammation in some cases. Inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) suppresses eosinophilic inflammation of the airway and reduces acute exacerbation (AE). The present study investigated the relationship between ICS and AE in patients with COPD classified by blood eosinophil counts. METHODS Overall, 244 patients with COPD were retrospectively evaluated between 2014 and 2017 and class...

Abstract Here we describe the case of a 78-year-old man with respiratory failure and right pleural effusion. Computed tomography showed right pleural effusion with pleural calcification, tumor-like shadows induced by passive atelectasis, and enlarged mediastinal lymph nodes. Positron emission tomography showed right pleural thickening, rounded atelectasis, and enlarged mediastinal lymph nodes, without fluid accumulation in other organs. The pleural effusion showed lymphocyte-dominated exudates w...

In general, we have to assume tuberculous pleurisy when a patient presents with pleural effusion and elevated adenosine deaminase (ADA). However, other diseases need to be considered, including immunoglobulin (Ig)G4-related disease (IgG4-RD). This case involved a 65-year-old asymptomatic man with right pleural effusion showing elevated ADA. He had no articular findings or rashes. Results were negative for all autoantibodies. Pleura, mediastinal lymph nodes, and areas around the aorta and vertebr...

: Chylothorax is the accumulation of lipid pleural effusion. Few reports have described chylothorax caused by gastric cancer. A 45-year-old woman presented with progressive lymphedema and bilateral chylothorax. Although repetitive thoracentesis was performed to relieve her dyspnea, swelling of her axillary lymph nodes became significant. Positron emission tomography/computed tomography demonstrated the accumulation of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose in these nodes, and a lymph node biopsy showed signet r...

BACKGROUND: We investigated the measurement of end-tidal partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PETCO2) with a capnometer in patients with respiratory failure, and we determined whether this technique could provide an alternative to measurement of PaCO2 using arterial blood gas analysis in the clinical setting. METHODS: We measured PETCO2 in subjects with hypoxemic and hypercarbic respiratory failure using a capnometer. We simultaneously measured PaCO2, venous partial pressure of carbon dioxide (Pv...
