kellicotti eggs were evident in sputum, bronchoalveolar
lavage fluid, pleural effusion or biopsies, or lung biopsies in previous reports and in two cases described in this report; the intervals from illness onset to parasitologic diagnosis ranged from 1 month to 5 years (4-9).
The use of the telescoping plugged catheter and bronchoalveolar
lavage increases the overall diagnostic yield.
Key Words: RSV, respiratory syncytial virus, pneumonia, ARDS, acute respiratory distress syndrome, respiratory failure, BAL, bronchoalveolar
To identify and model individual variations in the protein expression profiles present in complex clinical samples such as bronchoalveolar
lavage, we adopted a strategy to (a) reduce variability in sample selection, collection, and preparation and (b) address the range of biological variations in clinical presentation for comparison to protein expression patterns.
lung carcinoma spreads along the alveoli and bronchiolar surfaces, making it nearly impossible to resect.

Samples collected were sputum, bronchial wash, bronchoalveolar
lavage pleural fluid, and blood.
A study on the differential diagnosis of ciliated epithelial cells from Lophomonas blattarum in bronchoalveolar
lavage fluid (in Chinese).
Galactomannan (GM) is a polysaccharide component of the cell wall of Aspergillus , which can be released into the body fluids by growing hyphae, such as blood, urine, and bronchoalveolar
(6) In a Japanese study by Hanafy et al., 95% of the clinically isolated Actinomadura strains from sputa and bronchoalveolar
lavage fluid belonged to two species: Actinomadura cremea and Actinomadura nitritigenes.
For this purpose, bronchoalveolar
lavage (BAL) samples were evaluated for the presence of MTB by using GeneXpertA(r)MTB/RIF test.
