History of the disease by pulmonology. Diagnosis: Idiopathic fibrosing alveolitis


History of the disease by pulmonology

Diagnosis: Idiopathic fibrosing alveolitis. Stage of Cell Lung. Moderate erythrocytosis.


Complaints for prolonged coughing, intensifying with physical activity, with the separation of a small amount of yellow sputum; on shortness of breath with insignificant physical activity (lifting for 1 flight of stairs) physical load; on periodic piercing pains in the region of the upper end of the heart with irradiation under the shoulder blade under load; on pulling pains at the bottom of the abdomen, not related to the body position and the load; on pasty scurvy (in the evenings).

The history of the present disease ( Anamnesis morbi)

In youth, he suffered from chronic otitis media. In 2000 there were pains in the heart, shortness of breath under load, a diagnosis of coronary heart disease: angina pectoris II f. k., examined in VKNC, prescribed cardiotocept, veroshkiron periodically, verapamil with heart attacks with an effect. In March 2002 there were attacks of cough, at the end with a slight yellow detoxification of sputum. Surveyed in 61 GKB, marked a severe condition, wheezing in the lungs, (lower bilateral pneumonia two-sided?). May 2002 – X-ray – Strengthening and deformation of the figure – Diagnosis of fibrosing alveolitis, emphysema, diffuse pneumosclerosis. After discharge, the condition improved to a relatively satisfactory, coughing attacks became less frequent (at night), sputum less, cardialgia less frequently. X-ray changes persisted, shortness of breath intensified. Since 2002, received corticosteroids, then colchicine was added to therapy. Several hospitalizations in the clinic. to them E.M.Tareyeva in connection with exacerbation of chronic obstructive bronchitis: in March 2003, in October 2003, In 2003 – biopsy – confirmed idiopathic fibrosing alveolitis. In 2003 – CT. The real deterioration of the condition during the month when it began to increase shortness of breath, cough intensified with sputum, feces of the leg appeared. Hospitalization October 27, 2004

 Preliminary diagnosis

  • Idiopathic fibrosing alveolitis. Stage of Cell Lung.
  • Chronic bronchitis.
  • CHD: angina pectoris II f. k.

Survey plan

  1. Clinical analysis of blood, platelets, reticulocytes.
  2. Time of blood clotting, bleeding time, coagulation, PI.
  3. Blood group, Rh factor, Reaction Wasserman, HBsAg.
  4. AST, ALT, gamma-GT (justification: to determine the status of liver functions).
  5. Biochemical blood test (12-channel, 6-channel) (rationale: for determining the functions of the kidneys, liver, pancreas, estimates of homeostasis).
  6. Brainstorm: titers of ASL-O (rationale: to evaluate the activity of arthritis).
  7. General analysis of sputum (substantiation: exclusion
  8. X-ray of the chest organs (rationale: assess the stage of the process).
  9. Functional examination of the heart and lungs: ECG, monitoring of blood pressure, FVD ( justification: assess the degree of restriction and dynamics in the treatment).
  10. Ultrasound: heart, abdominal cavity, kidney (justification: lower abdominal pain).

MCHC 35,9 g/dl (31.5-35.0)
SOE 10 mm / h & nbsp;  


Rhythm: sinus, correct. Frequency of contractions in I minute 70.

Conclusion: EOS is located horizontally. The rhythm is sinusoid, correct. Changes in myocardium of the hypertrophied left ventricle.


Conclusion: Restriction of respiration by restrictive and obstructive types.

Clinical diagnosis

Idiopathic fibrosing alveolitis. Stage of Cell Lung. Moderate erythrocytosis.

In favor of the diagnosis: idiopathic fibrosing alveolitis testifies:

  • Anamnestic data indicating the risk factor of idiopathic fibrosing alveolitis (occupational harm);
  • Results of instrumental studies: characteristic lung changes in radiography and CT.
  • Results of biopsy.

Cell lung stage exhibited on the basis of:

  • Results of CT.


  • Chronic lung heart;
  • Pulmonary heart failure;
  • Nidos Circulatory blood circulation on both circles.

Concomitant diseases:

  • Chronic obstructive bronchitis (according to the results of physical examination and physical examination);
  • Arthritis (anamnestic data, physical examination);
  • IHD: angina pectoris II


  1. Cardiot 20 mg * 2 p / day (prevention of angina pectoris)
  2. Isoptin 40 mg * 3 p / day (antianginal action, treatment of pulmonary hypertension in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease of the lungs)
  3. Omega 1 capsule for the night (prophylaxis of the ulcer of the stomach)
  4. Methidred 12 mg / day (3 pills) (stop progression of lung fibrosis)
  5. Colchicine 0.5 mg / day (treatment of idiopathic fibrosing alveolitis).
