pulmonary abscess

Lung abscess is a purulent lesion of lung tissue caused by a variety of causes. The early stage is suppurative inflammation, followed by necrosis and abscess. It mostly occurs in the prime of life, with more men than women. According to the causes, there are infections caused by trachea infection, blood borne infection, multiple abscesses and lung cancer. Lung abscesses can also be classified according to related pathogens, such as staphylococcal, anaerobic or aspergillic lung abscesses. Since the widespread use of antibiotics, the incidence of lung abscess has been greatly reduced.
