More than 8 lbs is by definition macrosoma
Shawn Carter was born December 4th
Weighing in at 10 pounds 8 ounces
He was the last of my four children
The only one who didn't give me any pain when I gave birth to him
And that's how I knew that he was a special child
Is it still considered idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is it appears to have been caused by an atypical pneumonia?
Why not Sarcoidosis? Wouldn't Sarcodosis also be a chronic inflamation with fibrous thickening?
UIP is a better answer. Sarcoid is a leap in logic, usual interstitial pneumonitis is textbook histological definition of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. The biopsy has no mention of noncaseating granulomas and the clinical picture is not consistent with an inflammatory process.
You have to focus on the better answers, try not to get caught up in the "why nots?" Calling this sarcoidosis is like someone coming in with prototypical asthma and jumping to eosinophilic granulomatous with polyangiitis. Sure its a possibility but its definitely not likely.
I picked “diffuse alveolar damage” with Pulmonary Fibrosis in mind but these are actually key words for ARDS :/
thank you swagcabana! Very good explanation and strategy!
