nodules in pulmonary nocardiosis are uncommonly seen in HIV-negative immunocompromised patients,  and they are also very rare in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
parenchymal nodules are presumably due to septic occlusion of small, peripheral pulmonary arterial branches, resulting in the development of metastatic lung abscesses and airfluid levels may present in some of these cavities (3), (4).
If the risk for postoperative cavitary
adhesions is high, consider postoperative balloon placement with close postoperative follow-up
However, with the availability of effective and less toxic azole antifungal agents such as fluconazole and itraconazole, we recognize that clinicians probably would choose to offer combined medical and surgical therapies for patients with this unusual complication of cavitary
disease was less frequent in HIV-negative patients than in other groups
G] Severity of the disease among the both controls and cases: Cavitary
disease in controls was about 36% where as in cases was 44%.
For patients without a cavitary
lesion and whose cultures become negative during the first two months, the continuation phase is only four months.
Rapidly progressive cavitary
lung disease can occur in the setting of PCP even on appropriate antibiotic therapy.
Other indications for sputum culture include pleural effusion, cavitary
infiltrates, and failure of outpatient therapy; all of these indications were observed among the MRSA patients described in this report.
We describe the case of a 37-year-old male with advanced cavitary
disease from Mycobacterium avium complex.
This article describes an HIV-positive patient with a primary MALT lymphoma of the lung and a cavitary
lesion with a fungal ball, which was consistent with Aspergillus species.
