Hypersensitivity pneumopathies: x-ray computed tomographic aspects

, : Hypersensitivity pneumopathies: x-ray computed tomographic aspects. Journal de Radiologie 76(7): 435-440

Chest radiographs and computed tomographic scans obtained from nineteen patients with hypersensitivity pneumonitis were reviewed retrospectively. Thirteen of them had a subacute form. Six of them had a chronic form. In subacute forms, CT scans were normal in two patients. In the 11 other cases, CT findings were ground glass attenuation (n = 10), nodules (n = 7) and linear opacities (n = 5). Ground glass attenuation was diffuse or patchy. Two patterns are quite suggestive of hypersensitivity pneumonitis: the association of micronodules and ground glass attenuation and the presence of hyperlucent secondary lobules within the ground glass. After cessation of exposure, CT showed a return to normal or improvement. Ground glass opacities, nodules and also linear opacities disappeared. CT scans were always abnormal in chronic forms. CT findings were linear opacities (n = 6), ground glass attenuation (n = 4), micronodules (n = 2) and cysts (n = 3).

Mineral malnutrition is widespread in sub-Saharan Africa but its extent is difficult to quantify. Using Malawi as a case study, the aim of this work was to investigate the adequacy of calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg) nutrition by combining national...

The type II collagen gene (Col2a1) is expressed primarily in chondrocytes. Transcription of Col2a1 is mediated by cell-specific regulatory elements located within the promoter and first intron. Here, we map a minimal enhancer and identify elements...
