    Dx 1

    Advertisements



    A 50-year-old man consults a physician because he has developed a chronic, non-productive cough and is experiencing a reduced ability to
    do strenuous work. His symptoms have developed insidiously. On questioning, he states that he is a smoker and has also worked as a
    contractor for all of his adult life. Physical examination is notable for the presence of repetitive end-inspiratory basal crackles and finger
    clubbing. A chest x-ray film shows diffusely distributed, small irregular opacities that are most prominent in the lower lung zones. Localized
    areas of pleural thickening are also noted. No large masses are seen.




    The chest x-ray film is most consistent with which of the following?
    / A. Emphysema
    / B. Interstitial disease
    / C. Lobar pneumonia
    / D. Lung cancer
    / E. PIeural effusion

    why even bother with the obvious. Just know where you are need it and where you can help the most.

    Hello IMG SURVIVOR,

    I think the answer is B.Interstitial disease (maybe Asbestosis).
