This is picture like in case of Asbestosis.give him antibiotics ,bronchodilaters,n symptomatic treatment.Do BAL for Ca lung

It should be bilateral

Consolidation , collapse with fibrosis of right lower zone is suggestive of tuberculosis lesion ! If the patient is taking ATT you will not get any finding ! If in doubt go for CECT chest , bronchoscopy !

Pneumoconiosis, with rt LL tumor, tb possible Dd ,proceed with ct thorax

Cxr suggestive of consolidation. However CECT thorax is a must for better deliniation. Plz post the images once CT is done.

Unfortunately the pt has been discharged from the hospital a few days back , and will try to send the same when he comes for follow up later. . Actually I posted this case as it has interesting findings. Based on history and presence of chronic chest pain , sputum neg , we were thinking in terms of malignancy only. CT showed e/o mid lobe RT collapse with fibrotic changes Lt lingular and upper lobe with few Mediastinal nodes. FOB showed e/o gross inflamed odema mucosa of Lt upper and lingular bronchus with grossly inflamed odemtous , irregular mucosa causing near total obstruction of RT mid lobe bronchus. Strongly suspecting ca biopsy was taken from mid lobe bronchus . To my surprise BAL was positive for AFB and hpe confirms tubercular lesions . Hence he has been discharged with att cat 1 treatment and Adv follow up. In case he comes back after 1 or 2 months I will post his follow up cxr .
