Hyaline membrane disease
What is viral infection of young children that produces inflammatory obstructive swelling localized to the subglottic portion of the trachea?
Acute infections of the epiglottis, most commonly caused by Haemophilus influenzae in children, cause thickening of epiglottic tissue
What is an inflammation of the lung that can be caused by a variety of organisms?
What is most commonly produced by viral and mycoplasmal infections, involves the walls and lining of the alveoli and the interstitial supporting structures of the lung?
Aspiration of esophageal or gastric contents into the lung can lead to the development of pneumonia?
What is caused by the sporelike microbe known as Bacillus anthracis?
What is a necrotic area of pulmonary parenchyma contraining purulent (puslike) material?
What is caused by mycobacterium tuberculosis, a rod shaped bacterium with a protective waxy coat that permits it to live outside the body for a long time?
What means fungal infection of the lung?
Hyperinflation with diffuse increased interstitial markings
Severe cases demonstrate focal areas of atelectasis?
Respiratory syncytial Virus
What is a chronic obstruction of the airways that leads to an ineffective exchange of respiratory gases and makes breathing difficult?
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
What is a crippling and debilitating condition in which obstructive and destructive changes in small airways (the acini or terminal bronchioles) lead to a dramatic increase in the volume of air in the lungs?
What is a very common disease in which widespread narrowing of the airways develops because of an increased responsiveness of the tracheobronchial tree to various stimuli (allergens)?
What refers to permanent abnormal dilation of one or more large bronchi as a result of destruction of the elastic and muscular components of the bronchial wall?
What is a multisystem granulomatous disease of unknown cause that is most often detected in young adults?
What is chronic interstitial inflammation that leads to pulmonary fibrosis and a diffuse nonspecific radiographic pattern of linear streaks and nodules throughout the lungs?
What is an inhalation of high concentrations of silicon dioxide (crystalline silica) primarily affects workers engaged in mining, foundry work, and sandblasting?
What may develop in improperly protected workers engaged in manufacturing asbestos products, in handling building materials, or in working with insulation composed of asbestos?
What are neoplasms of low-grade malignancy that constitute approximately 1% of all bronchial neoplasms?
What Primary carcinoma of the lung arises from the mucosa of the bronchial tree?
what refers to a shower of bacteria that enter the pulmonary circulation and remain trapped within the lung?
septic embolism `
What is a potentially fatal condition, is by far the most common pathologic process involving the lungs of hospitalized patients?
What is an abnormal vascular communication from a pulmonary artery to a pulmonary vein?
Pulmonary Arteriovenous fistula
What is refered to a condition in which there is diminished air within the lung associated with reduced lung volume?
What describes a clinical picture of severe, unexpected, and life-threatening acute respiratory distress that develops in patients who have a variety of medical and surgical disorders but no major underlying lung disease?
Adult respiratory distress syndrome
Aspiration of solid foreign bodies into the tracheobronchial tree occurs almost exclusively in young children are?
intrabronchial foreign bodies
Air within the mediastinal space may appear spontaneously, or it may result from chest trauma, from perforation of the esophagus or tracheobronchial tree, or from the spread of air along fascial planes in the neck, peritoneal cavity, or retroperitoneal space is?
Mediastinal Emphysema (Pneumomediastinum)
What is caused by penetrating or blunt injuries that disrupt the lung and parietal pleura and force air into the tissues of the chest wall?
What is the presence of air in the pleural cavity, results in a partial or complete collapse of the lung?
What is the accumulation of fluid in the pleural space is a nonspecific finding that may be caused by a wide variety of pathologic processes?
What refers to the presence of infected liquid or frank pus in the pleural space?
What is an elevation of one or both leaves of the diaphragm can be caused by paralysis resulting from any process that interferes with the normal function of the phrenic nerve?
