Air pollution is a burgeoning environmental problem with potential for climate change. The worst-hit areas are the rapidly developing capital cities of low- and middle-income countries across the globe. Delhi, the capital of India, is no exception. In fact, Delhi was the most polluted of more than 1600 cities in the world according to the WHO's 2014 database for outdoor air pollution. The recent declaration of a public health emergency in and around the city speaks volumes about the declining air quality in India...

Pulmonary capillary hemangiomatosis (PCH) is a rare cause of primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) diagnosed in children and young adults with a nonspecific clinical presentation of dyspnea, cough, chest pain, and fatigue. It is characterized by extensive proliferation of pulmonary capillaries within alveolar septa. The imaging features include diffuse centrilobular ground-glass opacities with features of pulmonary hypertension. We present a case of PCH in an 11-year-old boy who was diagnosed with PPH in echocardiography and referred for diagnostic imaging...

Muhammet Sayan, Huseyin Arpag
Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)-guided transbronchial biopsy procedure is widely used for the diagnosis of mediastinal lymphadenopathy. İt is a safe method and the complication rate of procedure is <1%. Rarely, the fatal complications may develop after the intervention. Here, we present a case of pericardial empyema occurred as a complication of EBUS-guided transbronchial biopsy procedure.

Endobronchial ultrasound elastography is new ultrasound technology that is being reported recently for the evaluation of mediastinal lymphadenopathy during endobronchial ultrasound-guided (EBUS) transbronchial needle aspiration. This modality is based on the assessment of tissue stiffness that may be useful in differentiating benign from malignant lesions. Image generation leads to colored images with different colors signifying varying degrees of stiffness. The utility of this technique has been studied to differentiate between benign and malignant lymph nodes and various methods for representation of results which include visual color estimation, quantitative color estimation, and strain ratios have been described...

Issues related to the management of pleural effusion in India are unique. With high incidence of tuberculosis and malignancy, managing patients with pleural effusion may not be the same between patients. Decisions on intercostal chest drain insertion, volume of fluid to be removed during therapeutic thoracentesis, and further diagnostic imaging and investigations are often taken with difficulty in low-resource settings. Pleural manometry can help resolve these issues and help in the management of such patients...

REVIEW

Asthma is a chronic disease of the airways affecting a large number of people across the globe. Uncontrolled asthma poses an emotional as well as the physical burden on patients and results in a great economic burden. "Exacerbation-prone phenotype" asthmatics are a cluster of patients who may suffer from more frequent and severe exacerbations than other asthmatics. Factors such as inadequate symptom control, improper adherence to medications, and incorrect use of inhalers are responsible for frequent asthma exacerbations...

Context: The optimal time to interpret bronchodilator reversibility remains controversial. This time may affect a positive diagnosis and manage asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Aims: We sought to document the time when maximum respiratory function is reached after inhalation of salbutamol and to define the optimal time of bronchodilator response to assess the reversibility or non reversibility of airway obstruction. Subjects and Methods: This prospective analytical study was spread over 8 months and included 58 patients with asthma or COPD with airway obstruction...

Introduction: Primary salivary gland-type tumors of the lung (PSGTTL) are rare intrathoracic malignant neoplasms. Their description in literature is largely limited to a few case series and case reports. A systematic review and pooled analysis of the previously reported cases of PSGTTL is presented here. Methods: Electronic database of PubMed using keywords "lung neoplasm" AND "salivary gland tumors" was used to identify the papers documenting the PSGTTL...

Background and Objectives: Pleural effusion is seen in around half of the cases of pulmonary embolism (PE). There are no data on the incidence of pleural effusion in cases of PE in the Kingdom of Bahrain. This study was done to determine the frequency and radiological features of pleural effusion in cases of acute PE and also to characterize the pleural fluid biochemistry and cell type in patients subjected to diagnostic thoracentesis. Methods: This was a retrospective, observational single-center study...

Background: 99DOTS (Directly Observed Treatment, Short course) is a low-cost, mobile phone-based technology that enables real-time remote monitoring of daily intake of treatment, first introduced by the Revised National Tuberculosis Programme under the national programme in 2015 in high-burden antiretroviral therapy (ART) centers. This project was launched for the first time in 2016 in Rajkot district, Gujarat, India, and hence this was an effort to evaluate 99DOTS. Objectives: The objective of this study was to evaluate treatment adherence rate and treatment outcome of 99DOTS-information communication technology (ICT)-based approach for tuberculosis (TB) management...
