Abstract

In recent years, the incidence of pulmonary cryptococcosis has increased year by year, seriously affect the physical and mental health of our people, and the CT manifestations of nodular pulmonary cryptococcosis are similar to lung cancer, which has caused great concern among doctors. However, there are few reports of patch type and it is easy to neglect in clinical work. Objective: Comparative study of primary pulmonary cryptococcosis with presented patchy shadows by CT and pathological findings, and improve the recognition. Analyze the image of illness on a person’s physical and mental health. Methods: Methods the clinical data of 9 patients with primary pulmonary cryptococcosis were retrospectively analyzed. Results: CT manifestations:patchy shadows adjoining pleura (9/9), air bronchogram (7/9), halo sign (5/9), fibrotic streaks (5/9), enhanced scan significantly improved (4/4).The lesions were located in the lower right lung lobe in 5 cases, in the upper right lung in 2 cases, in the left lower lobe in 1, in the lower right lung lobe and in the right upper lobe in 1 cases. Pathological results for inflammatory granuloma, transparent circle of phagocyte cryptococcus, may be accompanied by coagulation necrosis. Special dyeing results: PAS (+), an Acid fast stain (-). Analyze the psychological impact of the disease on patients. Conclusion: Pathological finding can explain some imaging signs. Together,We need to have a better understanding of the disease and to improve the accuracy of diagnosis. Only fully aware of pulmonary fungal infections can ensure the health of the people.
