marneffei infection x 4 doses Other Fludarabine and immunosuppressants dexamethasone (39), (time interval, mo) ([dagger]) prednisolone 10 mg/d and mycophenolate sodium 360 mg 2x/d (concomitant) Clinical manifestations Terminal ileitis, cerebral abscesses, nasopharyngitis, and multiple cavitary
lung lesions Specimens positive for Feces, and terminal ileal T.
A computed tomography (CT) scan of the chest showed a new cavitary
lesion in the right middle lobe and repeat C-ANCA and P-ANCA were positive.
On the basis of prior results from our group, we hypothesized that cavitary
disease would increase the risk for acquired resistance (13).
Antituberculous drugs may vary in their ability to kill mycobacteria, depending on whether they are located in cavitary
or closed caseous lesions or within the cells.
8) Additional pulmonary findings on CT include pulmonary nodules and masses, some of which may be cavitary
, consolidation and ground-glass opacities.
Hodgkin lymphoma presenting as multiple cavitary
pulmonary nodules with associated mediastinal adenopathy and neck mass.
These findings were also seen in conjunction with a cavitary
necrotic mass in the superior segment of the right lower lobe (Figure 1).
nodules in pulmonary nocardiosis are uncommonly seen in HIV-negative immunocompromised patients,  and they are also very rare in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
Age, sex, and country of birth (Canada or outside of Canada), results of sputum smear, presence of radiological pulmonary cavitary
lesion(s), presence of resistance to anti-TB medication(s), and starting anti-TB medication regimen (i.
The fungus that colonizes the cavitary
lesions of the lung most commonly belong to Aspergillus sp.
Usually, roentgenographic findings do not provide any clues towards identification of the specific pathogen except in a few cases in which the late development of a cavitary
lesion can suggest infection with Aspergillus species .
Objective: To identify the Doppler echocardiography criteria able to predict clinical deterioration of mild-to-moderate chronic heart failure (CHF) as well as, whenever possible, to evaluate the features of chronological relation of cavitary
remodelling in left chambers during follow-up (FU).
