[Diagnosis of Pneumocystic carinii pneumonia by lavage of the bronchial system (author's transl)].Klin Wochenschr. 1976 Aug 01; 54(15):743-4.KW
This report deals with a 10 year old girl suffering from an acute lymphoblastic leukemia since 1971. The child was hematologically in full remission, when she developed a pneumonia due to pneumocystis carinii. The diagnosis was established by demonstrating the agent in bronchial secretions. The material was obtained by rinsing the bronchial system. The patient was treated with pentamidine and co-trimoxazol (Bactrim) with good success.
