Pulmonary Interstitial Glycogenosis
Lung markings: Hi HajjM, that is a very general term used to describe what is going on within the tissue of lung when seen on a chest xray. In the lung you have airbags (alveoli) and tissue (interstitium). The tissue has blood vessels, lymph vessels, and many cells that make up the framework of the lung. When seen on xray, it could mean several things. Talk with your doctor about the findings. Hope that helps.See 1 more doctor answer
What does it mean findings in both upper parahilar regions may relate to chronic inflammatory changes vs. Prominent pulmonary interstitial markings?
I am not sure: But I believe that the radiologist is saying that the vessels at the hilum are prominent and is indicative of chronic bronchitic changes (an inflammatory process) or that the blood vessels are prominent as in chf. You can correlate with the symptoms which fits. Like the radiologist, I do not have a history to make a best guess.
Chest ex ray says lungs show increased interstitial markings with no active infiltrate, mass or effusion. What does that mean?
Depends on context: The interstitium of the lung refers to the area in and around the blood vessels and alveoli (air sacs). This is where the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide takes place. Inflammation and scarring of the interstitium disrupts this tissues. So the radiologist is noting that there appears to be increased markings in the area. There are many different conditions and disease that cause this pattern.
What does Diffuse coarsened interstitial markings throughout both lungs w/bilateral hilar prominence and perihilar infiltrates mean.?
Ask the doctor: Who ordered the study. Without any more history or symptoms no one could properly interpret this finding. The doctor who ordered the study should be able to answer this question but only for the person who actually got the study due to privacy concerns.
On a chest xray it said on the lungs there was mild, minimal interstitial scarring but no sign of focal consolidation. What's is this, is it serious?
My 3 babies have pulmonary hyperaeration (8yrs old), interstitial pneumonitis (7 y/o) and primary TB infection (5y/o.What best meds can I have for them?
Possible conditions: If there are chest radiographs/CT scans, perhaps you could upload them. I have a consult service at : healthtap. Com/DosanjhMD Keycode: NCYHPZ. Each of these conditions may have a different underlying cause. Hyperinflation may be related to asthma/ bronchial obstruction. Interstitial pneumonitis is commonly associated with viral illnesses, but there are other causes. TB test all household members.See 2 more doctor answers
Same: Ipf is one form of ild. It refers to disorders of the interstitium of he lung vs. Diseases that effect the bronchi, or alveolar spaces.
Not much: Ild/pulm fibrosis is a progressive destruction of lung architecture resulting in progressive shortness of breath. All therapy tried to date has not provided much improvement. Oxygen and exercise while awaiting lung transplant is a current management option. The mortality of ipf is on the order of less than 5 yr after dx.
Can granulomas cause mild dependent interstitial markings on lungs shown on Chest CT a year later?
No,: They are two different things. Granulomas are small benign nodules. Mild dependent interstitial markings are generally an incidental finding related to gravity dependent changes in lung markings, and are usually of no clinical concern.
What. Is antihypertensive of choice in interstitial lung disease with mild pulmonary hypertension?
Several choices: In the absence of other heart problems I would tend to try amlodipine in someone with high blood pressure and mild pulmonary hypertension. However many other medications such as acei or arb, beta blockers, Diltiazem or diuretics could also be appropriate. Please discuss with your doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
How long to wait between Normal chest CT that showed mild interstitial markings lungs & high resolution CT to see any changes? 6 mo? 1 yr? No differe
Try plain chest xray: CT scans have very high doses of radiation compared to a plain chest xray. You had some findings that could be followed with a plain chest xray. If there were significant changes on the next xray, then you may need a Chest CT. If not, I suggest talking to your doctor to postpone the CT. Because you are 31 yo, you need to be aware of the amount of radiation your body is receiving.
I have been diagnosed with Interstitial lung disease and post inflamatory pulmonary fibrosis. O2s are 94-98% when awake and 88-89% when sleeping. Should I be using oxygen when sleeping? Prognosis?
Should increased interstitial markings on a chest X-ray of the lungs be investigated if the patient had breast cancer in the past and is at highrisk?
Can interstitial lung disease like pulmonary fibrosis and those like pulmonary fib. Be ruled out pretty good with pulse ox, CT of lungs, and chest xra?
My dr says I have acute interstitial lung disease and wants to do a pulmonary function test and high resolution CT scan. What does all of this mean?
Not simple pneumonia: For a simple pneumonia, the initial x-rays can provide classical features and the doc can send you on your way with simple treatment. Interstitial lung disease requires a more involved evaluation because the potential causes are quite diverse. Differentiating a simple transient from a long term issue is important to identify a cause and course of treatment.See 2 more doctor answers
