In humans, radiographic abnormalities typically include bilateral lobar changes (7); in this dog, the accessory lung lobe was primarily affected on initial imaging, and this finding was interpreted as aspiration pneumonia.
The patient was hospitalized with a diagnosis of lobar pneumonia and oral claritromycine treatment was added to ceftriaxon treatment, which had been initiated in another center.
Cerebral amyloid angiopathy should be considered in patients older than 55 years who have numerous lobar hemorrhages without an obvious cause.
Congenital lobar overinflation (CLO) was previously termed "congenital lobar emphysema"--a misnomer, since these lesions lack the destruction of alveolar walls that typically denotes 'emphysema'.
In primary ICH, lobar ICH in elderly patients occurred more frequently associated with CAA than hypertensive small vessel disease.[22] Vascular structural changes such as basement membrane thickening and endothelial dysfunction in elderly patients increase susceptibility to hemodynamic stress.[23] Older age has been reported to be a risk factor for lobar ICH.
In conclusion, we suggested lobectomy for single lobar pulmonary involvement, and lobectomy for major lesion lesion; and segmentectomy for the minor lesion in unilateral multi-lobar involvement; and multiple thoracoscopic wedge resections for bilateral multi-lobar pulmonary involvement.
The CT showed multiple intraluminal cystic filling defects in the right main pulmonary artery and right lobar branches, mostly pulmonary artery hydatid cysts (see Figures 1 and 2).
A chest CT indicated lobar pneumonia in the lower left lobe and an infiltrating shadow in the left whole lung lobe and the lower right lobe (Figure 1).
