Soon afterwards, he was admitted to the ICU with respiratory insufficiency and signs of bilateral alveolar infiltrates
on chest X-ray.
One usually occurs at doses of 100 mg day, occurring within weeks of therapy, with the abrupt onset of dyspnea, fever, cough and patchy alveolar infiltrates
All hallmarks of the most severe form of acute lung injury, the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) are present: dyspnoea, refractory hypoxaemia, an inflammatory response, reduced pulmonary compliance and diffuse alveolar infiltrates
on chest radiography (2).
The classic chest radiograph reveals bilateral, diffuse alveolar infiltrates
consistent with alveolar flooding The absence of cardiomegaly and pleural effusion radiographically distinguishes ARDS from cardiogenic pulmonary edema.
A chest radiograph showed scattered bilateral alveolar infiltrates
The chest x-ray usually demonstrates patchy alveolar infiltrates
A chest radiograph showed bilateral alveolar infiltrates
Computed tomography (CT) scan of his chest showed multiple pulmonary nodules and alveolar infiltrates
with small cavities suggestive of septic infarctions.
The chest x-ray showed pulmonary vascular congestion and diffuse alveolar infiltrates
A case was defined as occurring in a patient with bilateral alveolar infiltrates
that required intubation and mechanical ventilation.
