Agree with Dr Gupta Harbilass

Chiladiti syndrome it is there... But I think acute exacerbation of COPD is more harassing at present to this pt

It is chilladiti syndrome. Wt loss is due to progressive copd.But There are blebs/ bullae visible which may rupture to produce pneumothorax. Loss of breath sounds is due to damaged air spaces. Differentials mimicking this presentation of progressive respiratory distress, wt. Loss is progressive airspace disease, pulmonary lymphangiomyomatosis/ lam. But lam is more common in young females. Ct chest can conclude the diagnosis.

Chilaiditi Syndrome in a case of COPD of long duration. COPD , in a patient of long duration and advanced age, may be cause of weight loss. Rx Rule out Kocks & Malignancy Sputum for AFB CBC, Thyroid-Liver- Kidney Profile CT Chest Antibiotics Bronchodilator Nebulisers Oxygen inhalation Good nourishing diet.

Pseudopneumoperitoneum (Chiladiti syndrome).COPD is apredisposing factor in this case.Patient can have pain abdomen, vomiting. But symptoms can vary from patient to patient.Can have weiget loss also.However should be looked for HIV, pul.kochs and thyroid profile also.

Hepatic flexure of colon is coming under rt dome. Chiladiti snlyndrome Ac breathlessness may be ac excerb of copd part There is no oblivious cause of wt loss Look for HIV for at loss There,is no evidence of Koch's Wt loss may be due to agony of copd Or may be due to ac summer season Appetizers may help Do blood counts Sometimes un attended or un recognized. Un noted raised TLC is cause of poor appetite and hence wt loss
