Chest X-ray on admission showed bilateral alveolar infiltrates
The chest X-ray showed scanty alveolar infiltrates
, presumably related to the higher PEEP level applied (Figure 2).
He died 4 days after admission with marked respiratory distress, hypoxemia, and bilateral upper lobe alveolar infiltrates
8) C pseudodiphthericum has been described as a cause of alveolar infiltrates
and lung abscess in HIV-positive patients.
One week later, a chest radiograph showed bilateral alveolar infiltrates
suggestive of pulmonary edema (Figure).
The clinical presentation of a patient with pulmonary hemorrhage is usually hemoptysis and anemia, associated with diffuse or focal patchy alveolar infiltrates
on chest x-ray.
Radiographic changes exhibited at admission consisted of bilateral interstitial infiltrates in 14 patients (56%), alveolar infiltrates
in 4 (16%), and mixed infiltrates in 5 (20%) patients.
Chest x-ray films showed bilateral lower lobe and peripheral right upper lobe alveolar infiltrates
