Udaipur:* Physicians at the Pacific Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) Hospital, Umarda, have successfully treated a patient who had been suffering from a severe illness for the past six months.
Chairman of PIMS, Ashish Agrawal, shared that a 40-year-old resident of Udaipur had been experiencing symptoms of asthma, coughing, and hemoptysis (coughing up blood) for the last six months. Due to these ailments, the patient was admitted to PIMS Hospital recently. X-rays revealed a radio-opaque shadow in the left mid-zone. Additionally, a CT scan showed subsegmental atelectasis in the upper lobe with a hypodense lesion, indicating a hydatid cyst.
A bronchoscopy was planned by the respiratory team, led by Dr. Sanidhya Tank, Dr. Gurmaehar Singh Thethi, Dr. Arpit Jauhar, Dr. Shubhanish Choudhary, Dr. Gaurang Singh Jadon, Dr. Abdul Wahab Mirza, and technician Giriraj. The bronchoscopy successfully identified laminated structures resembling a laminated cyst wall. Subsequently, the patient underwent surgery, and the cystic lesion was removed. Histopathology confirmed the presence of a hydatid cyst with fungal infection.
The patient was prescribed antifungal medication and was discharged after successful treatment. The respiratory department at PIMS emphasized the importance of thorough examination and appropriate action in cases like these, as hemoptysis related to hemoptysis can sometimes lead to fatal outcomes.
