세기관지폐포암의 증례를 통한 세기관지폐포암과 감염성 폐렴과의 임상적, 방사선학적 특징에 대한 고찰
Abstract
Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma may present with a variety of clinical and radiographic findings. It is originated from the periphery of the lung and can be mistaken for lobar pneumonia or atypical pneumonia. The most frequent symptoms and signs are cough, sputum, shortness of breath, weight loss, hemoptysis, and fever. Brochorrhea is unusual and a late manifestation. We conclude that early diagnosis of disease will increase operability and improve chances of survival and that aggressive diagnostic workup for suspicious pulmonary infiltrate is essential as early operation offers the best chances of cure.We report two cases of brochioloalveolar carcinoma presenting as proper clinical and radiological findings.
Key Words: Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma, Lobar pneumonia
