The pathomorphology of the pulmonary infectious complications in acute radiation sickness (based on the autopsy data from persons who died as a result of the accident at the Chernobyl Atomic Electric Power Station


, : The pathomorphology of the pulmonary infectious complications in acute radiation sickness (based on the autopsy data from persons who died as a result of the accident at the Chernobyl Atomic Electric Power Station. Terapevticheskii Arkhiv 68(3): 23-26

The lungs from 27 patients who died from acute radiation sickness in Chernobyl accident were studied histologically. Pulmonary infectious complications were found caused by invasion of viral, bacterial and fungal agents. 2 cases with cytomegaloviral pneumonitis, 3 with focal bronchopneumonia and 3 with pulmonary candidiasis are described. Being dependent on hematopoietic function, the inflammatory reactions were not pronounced in postirradiation aplasia and became evident in the recovery.
