There's bilateral diffuse infiltrates in both the lungs with left more than right. Tuberculosis involves apices and upper lobes more than middle and lower ones and bilateral involvement is also rare in tuberculosis. So, a sputum analysis is required for afb, gram stain, culture, nocardia, fungus along with bnp levels. Other routine tests like CBC, rft,lft and hbaIC required. We should keep possibilities like fluid overload state, staph pneumonia, fungal pneumonia etc. Start with amoxicillin i.v till cultures and other reports come.
