On left side, lingular
involvement was seen in 2%, lower lobe consolidation was seen in 26% of cases.
5 mL of saline was instilled into the lower left lobe (B8) and the lingular
bronchus (B4 or B5 left) as a control.
Chest radiograph showed diffuse bilateral pulmonary infiltrates, predominantly in the right upper lobe and lingular
Another finding is an independent lingular
vein that joins the left atrium.
In this case, PCR/ESI-MS detected a human enterovirus from the right middle lobe and left lingular
segment BAL fluid samples.
A position within 2 cm of the hilum has been described as acceptable,(27) although this fails to account for the proximal origin of small segmental right middle lobe and lingular
pulmonary arteries (Figure 6).
El bronquio lingular
se dirige ligeramente inferolateral con una longitud de 2 a 3 cm y se divide en superior (B4) e inferior (B5).
Thoracal HRCT which was performed in terms of bronchiectasis revealed tubular bronchiectasis which was central in the superior segments in the lower lobes of both lungs and peripheral in the posteror basal segment of the lower lobe in the left lung, millimetric nodular centrilobular involvement in the medial segment of the middle lobe in the right lung and in the posteror basal segments of the lower lobe in the left lung and pleural retractions in the lateral basal segment of the lower lobe in the right lung and in the inferior lingular
segment of the left lung (Picture 3).
His chest X-ray showed a patchy nonhomogeneous opacity consistent with pneumonia in the lingular
division of the left upper lobe (Figure 2).
A computed tomography pulmonary angiogram revealed a single small cavitating lesion of the lingular
lobe with diffuse loci of consolidation in the right middle and upper lobes, consistent with an embolic phenomenon.
7 NTM, non-tuberculous mycobacteria; MDR-TB, multidrug-resistant TB; RUL, right upper lobe; RML, right middle lobe; RLL, right lower lobe; LUL, left upper lobe; lin, lingular
segment; LLL, left lower lobe.
5 cm, lingular
segmentte 1x1 cm kitle, konsolidasyon ayrimi net yapilamayan nothiler, kismen duzensiz konturlu lezyonlar EUS-liAB sonucu reaktif lenf nodu saptandi.
