We report the case of a 55-year-old man with hypoxemic pneumonia, who presented a worsening of his hypoxia secondary to the injection of this calcium channel inhibitor (CCI). This side effect was probably caused by inhibition of hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction. Effects of CCI on pulmonary vessels...

We report a 65-year-old male, suffering from aspiration pneumonia after gastric banding revealed by intermittent fever inducing a delayed diagnosis. Several early and later pulmonary complications following laparoscopic gastric banding have been reported. Removal or deflation of the band should be c...
[Non-tumoral vascular disorders of the lung in the adulthood].
Non-tumoral vascular disorders of the lung are multiple, even if cases diagnosed in the adulthood are rare. They include congenital or acquired conditions, which related symptoms, if present, are non specific. This explains why their diagnosis is challenging and usually delayed. Surg...
