  • Acute Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis Associated With a High Ki-67 Proliferative Index. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2020 Apr 30; 12(4):e7905.Nabrinsky E, Kamar A, … Stone A
  • Hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HSP) is an interstitial lung disease caused by exposure to a large range of environmental antigens. Inhaling aerosolized particles leads to a heightened immune response. HSP comes in acute, subacute, or chronic forms, all with their own potential clinical and radiographic findings. Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) is the most common nontuberculous mycobacteria and i…
  • Clinical and radiological characteristics of e-cigarette or vaping product use associated lung injury. [Journal Article]
    Emerg Radiol. 2020 May 28 [Online ahead of print]Chidambaram AG, Dennis RA, … Rapp JB
  • CONCLUSIONS: Adolescents with suspected EVALI commonly present with subacute respiratory distress with abdominal pain. Imaging findings include ground-glass opacities, subpleural sparing, and basilar opacities, most consistent with organizing pneumonia or hypersensitivity pneumonitis. Recognition of the common imaging findings may have significant patient management implications, especially if the diagnosis is not suspected clinically. The lung function effects of vaping are consistent with mildly reduced airflow, which improves on follow-up testing, and reduced diffusion capacity, which, concerningly, does not improve.
  • Challenges and countermeasures of thoracic oncology in the epidemic of COVID-19. [Review]

  • Since December, 2019, a 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) infected by the severe acute respiratory syndrome corona virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) emerged in Wuhan, Hubei province, and the epidemic situation has continued to spread globally. The epidemic spread of COVID-19 has brought great challenges to the clinical practice of thoracic oncology. Outpatient clinics need to strengthen the differenti…
  • Smoking-associated interstitial lung disease: update and review. [Journal Article]
    Expert Rev Respir Med. 2020 May 22 [Online ahead of print]Dawod YT, Cook NE, … Thao C
  • Smoking-associated interstitial lung disease manifests as several heterogeneous disorders involving the airways, pleura, and lung parenchyma with various radiological patterns. The clinical history, radiologic, and pathologic findings are important to distinguish these more uncommon diseases. A multidisciplinary approach is recommended for diagnosis and to manage these conditions appropriately.
  • EBV-associated lymphoid interstitial pneumonia in IBD patient: Case report and literature review. [Case Reports]
    Respir Med Case Rep. 2020; 30:101059.Prasoppokakorn T, Assanasen T, … Suankratay C
  • CONCLUSIONS: To our knowledge, we report herein the first case of EBV-associated LIP in an IBD patient. We postulate that LIP was the consequence from EBV reactivation, probably due to immunosuppressive agents and/or IBD itself. The physician should aware of this disease when taking care of immunosuppressive patients who present with acute interstitial pneumonitis.
  • Nationwide survey of radiation therapy in Japan for lung cancer complicated with interstitial lung disease. [Journal Article]
    J Radiat Res. 2020 May 04 [Online ahead of print]Hagiwara Y, Nakayama Y, … Japan Radiation Oncology Study Group (JROSG) Working Subgroup for Lung and Mediastinal Tumors
  • The purpose of this study was to clarify the opinions of radiation oncologists in Japan regarding treatment for lung cancer complicated with interstitial lung disease (ILD) by a questionnaire survey, and the risk of acute exacerbation (AE) after radiotherapy. Questionnaires were sent to all of the facilities in which radiation therapy is performed for lung cancer in Japan by using the mailing lis…
  • COVID-19 and the cardiovascular system: implications for risk assessment, diagnosis, and treatment options. [Journal Article]
    Cardiovasc Res. 2020 Apr 30 [Online ahead of print]Guzik TJ, Mohiddin SA, … McInnes IB
  • The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, caused by SARS-CoV-2, represents the greatest medical challenge in decades. We provide a comprehensive review of the clinical course of COVID-19, its comorbidities, and mechanistic considerations for future therapies. While COVID-19 primarily affects the lungs, causing interstitial pneumonitis and severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)…
  • HRCT Patterns of Drug-Induced Interstitial Lung Diseases: A Review. [Review]
    Diagnostics (Basel). 2020 Apr 22; 10(4)Distefano G, Fanzone L, … Basile A
  • Interstitial Lung Diseases (ILDs) represent a heterogeneous group of pathologies, which may be related to different causes. A low percentage of these lung diseases may be secondary to the administration of drugs or substances. Through the PubMed database, an extensive search was performed in the fields of drug toxicity and interstitial lung disease. We have evaluated the different classes of drug…
  • A case report of fungal infection associated acute fibrinous and organizing pneumonitis. [Journal Article]
    BMC Pulm Med. 2020 Apr 20; 20(1):98.Zhao J, Shi Y, … Su X
  • CONCLUSIONS: As this common "contaminant" can behave as a pathogen in the immunocompromised host, both clinicians and microbiologists should consider the presence of a serious and potentially fatal fungal infection on isolation of P. citrinum. Based on this case, it could be speculated that AFOP may be associated with fungal infection including P. citrinum.
  • [The effect of air pollution in diffuse interstitial lung disease]. [Review]
    Rev Mal Respir. 2020 May; 37(5):389-398.Sesé L, Jeny F, … Nunes H
  • Few studies have examined the effects of air pollution in diffuse interstitial lung disease and they have focused on small numbers of patients. Most data are available in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and studies suggest that the level of exposure to pollutants may influence the development of acute exacerbations (ozone and NO2), their incidence (NO2), decline in respiratory function (PM10) and d…
  • A forensic evaluation of plague - a re-emerging infectious disease with biowarfare potential. [Journal Article]
    Med Sci Law. 2020 Mar 19 [Online ahead of print]Byard RW
  • Plague is an acute infectious disease caused by the gram-negative cocco-bacillus Yersinia pestis. It has been responsible for 200 million deaths throughout history with three major pandemics. There are three forms: bubonic, septicaemic and pneumonic, each carrying a significant mortality rate. The usual transmission is from fleas carried by rodents. Recently, it has been listed as one of the reem…
