    Title A 71-year-old Man with Unilateral Wheezing: an Unusual Cause.
    Date April 2008
    Journal The American Journal of the Medical Sciences

    We present an unusual case of a 71-year-old man with unilateral wheezing brought on by change in position. Isolated bronchomalacia in the absence of tracheal involvement occurs more commonly in children and in adults with emphysema, chronic bronchitis, extrinsic compression by tumors, compression by abnormal blood vessels or vascular rings, relapsing polychondritis, endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation, enlarged left atrium, trauma, and lung transplantation. Our patient had predominant unilateral bronchomalacia. In this report, we present the clinical features, review the literature, and describe the probable pathophysiology.

    Title Intrapleural Haemorrhage Complicating Pulmonary Arteriovenous Fistula.
    Date July 1978
    Journal British Journal of Diseases of the Chest

    Rupture of a pulmonary arteriovenous fistula caused intrapleural haemorrhage in a young woman with hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia and multiple bilateral fistulas. Bleeding was limited and exsanguination was probably prevented by pleural adhesions. Treatment included decortication, excision of the bleeding fistula, and prophylactic sclerosis of the opposite pleural space.

    Title Thoracic and Pulmonary Abnormalities in Multiple Myeloma. A Review of 958 Cases.
    Date June 1978
    Journal Archives of Internal Medicine

    Review of the records of 958 patients with multiple myeloma disclosed thoracic skeletal or pleuropulmonary abnormalities or both in 443 patients (46%). The abnormalities were an initial finding on 25% of the chest roentgenograms. The most common finding, exclusive of plasmacytomas, was thoracic skeletal abnormality in 28% (the initial finding in 15%)--osteolytic lesions being the most frequent abnormality. Localized or diffuse pulmonary infiltrates, most often caused by infections, were present in 10%. Four patients had a diffuse infiltrate thought to be caused by a plasma cell infiltrate (proven in one). In 113 patients, plasmacytomas were seen (intramedullary 102, extramedullary 11)--as an initial finding in 8%. Fifty-eight patients (6%) had pleural effusions. Eight patients with pleural effusion caused by myeloma are added to the eight cases reported in the literature.
