    The purposes of this article are to review in detail a series of patients treated with pneumothorax, to outline contra-indications and to evaluate the use of streptomycin in patients treated with pneumothorax, and to offer an explanation of the decline in use of this treatment. The series comprises patients admitted to the Fitzsimmons Army Hospital, Denver, Colorado, during   Joachim Ziemsen further explains to Castorp that the patients with artificial pneumothorax were in some way brought together by the procedure. In the sanatorium they were known as the “Half-Lung Club,” a handful of patients most affected by pulmonary tuberculosis and whose lungs needed rest to .

    BACKGROUND: Pneumothorax is a well known complication of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB), particularly in patients with advanced TB. METHODS: At our national TB-referral hospital, we compared the medical records of 53 TB patients with pneumothorax and TB patients without pneumothorax, seen in to We analyzed data on demographics; TB type (smear-positive, smear-negative. INTRODUCTION. Tuberculosis (TB) is a long-recognized and well-documented cause of secondary spontaneous pneumothorax, 1,2 with an incidence of approximately 5% in postprimary (pulmonary) TB patients. 3 Pleural infection results from rupture of subpleural caseous lesions, resulting in accumulation of a chronic empyema. A bronchopleural fisutla may occur spontaneously during the natural history.

For this reason, we retrospectively analysed the experience of SP in patients diagnosed with TB in our hospital between and Out of patients treated for SP during this period, 47 (%) had TB antecedents, 21 with active TB (% of.

Many patients with tuberculosis (TB)-related pseudochylothoraces have been treated with artificial pneumothorax for pulmonary TB and have chronic pleural effusions secondary to the atelectatic lung.

Pleural fluid from TB-related pseudochylothoraces is usually culture negative. The exact pathogenesis of pseudochylothorax is poorly understood.

THE successful practice of artificial I pneumothorax in pulmonary tuberculosis requires the complete co-operation of the clinician and the roentgenologist. So necessary is this that it is impossible to carry the treatment to a successful conclusion without careful roentgenologic studies throughout the long period required for pneumothorax therapy.

With this in mind, it behooves us as roentgenologists to have a thorough knowledge of the various phases in the treatment. Through the first half of this century, artificial pneumothorax (AP) had been the preferred method for control of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB).

Many of the different treatments employed to treat TB of all types at this time were based on the principles of resting and.Artificial pneumothorax is the introduction of air into the pleural cavity, leading to the collapse of the affected lung.
