Abstract

RODRIGUES, Rosana; MARCHIORI, Edson  and  SOUZA, Daniel Andrade Tinoco de. Pulmonary malaria: high-resolution computed tomography findings - a case report. Radiol Bras [online]. 2004, vol.37, n.2, pp. 139-142. ISSN 0100-3984.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842004000200012.

We report the case of a 38-year-old man with pulmonary malaria. High-resolution computed tomography showed thickening of the peribronchovascular interstitium and interlobular septa, areas of consolidation and ground glass attenuation and bilateral pleural effusion suggesting pulmonary edema. The patient recovered well after receiving specific treatment and was discharged after 11 days of hospitalization.
