- CONCLUSIONS: BLVR using EBV shows short-term improvement in lung function and quality of life, but with increased risk of minor hemoptysis, pneumothorax, and valve migration. Follow-up data on the studies are needed to determine its long-term efficacy.

A 64-year-old man was admitted to our hospital for purpuric rash, joint pain, and a fever. He had earlier undergone a follow-up examination for interstitial lung disease. At the current visit, the diagnosis was immunoglobulin A (IgA) vasculitis, based on skin and renal biopsy findings. He developed sudden breathlessness and hemoptysis. Chest computed tomography revealed ground glass opacity in the right lower lung fields, suggesting pulmonary hemorrhaging associated with IgA vasculitis. Despite steroid and cyclophosphamide therapy, and plasma exchange, he died 52 days after admission. Early aggressive therapies may be recommended for old patients with IgA vasculitis who have an additional comorbidities.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a common cause of death worldwide. Several factors are associated with increased risk of DVT. In this report a case of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) of the lower limb and its link with underlying pulmonary tuberculosis is described in a young male patient with haemoptysis.

- CONCLUSIONS: Lung MWA may be an additional host risk factor for IPA, particularly in elderly patients with underlying diseases and in patients who have recently undergone chemotherapy. Early and accurate diagnosis of IPA after MWA is critical for patient prognosis. Voriconazole should be given as the first-line treatment as early as possible. Bronchial artery embolization or intracavitary lavage may be required in some patients.
