ABSTRACT
Objective To manifest the imaging appearances of the pulmonary mucormycesis in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome(AIDS).Methods The radiographic and hiish resolution computed lomography(HRCT)features of the pulmonary mucormycosis in 13 patients with AIDS were retrospectively analyzed.Results On radiography,the infiltrative lesions were found in 5 patients,7 cases had reticular pattem,4 cages had pleural effusion,4 cages had enlarged hilar and mediagtinal lymph nodes,3 cases had diffuse milliary lesions,3 Cages had masses,2 cases had ground-slags shadows,2 cages had cystic lesions,cavity,pleural thickening,pericardia]effusion and focal pneumothorax Wag presented in 1 cage respectively.On HRCT,7 cages had enlarged mediagtinal lymph nedes,7 cages had interlobular septal thickening,the infiltrative lesion were found in 6 patients,5 cages had diffuse milliary lesions,4 cages had pleural effusion,3 cases had inasses,2 cages had ground-glass shadows,2 cases had cystic lesions,cavity,pleural thickening,focal bronchiectagis,pericardial effusion and focal pneumothorax was presented in 1 case respectively.Conclusion The main imaging appearances of the pulmonary mucormycesis in patients with AIDS include diffuse milliary lesion,enlarged hilar and mediagtinal lymph node,interiobular septal thickening,infiltrative lesion,pleural effusion and mass.
