I have a foreign friend (he is also in a foreign country), male, in his 70s, who had walking pneumonia about a month ago. The reason may be that when he was cleaning the weeds in the yard, there were a lot of mushrooms in the yard. He didn't wear a mask, so he was infected by fungi, which led to walking pneumonia). Then he should be much better after looking for a local doctor for treatment. Then I had a chest X-ray about last week, and the results are as follows: chestxray reeveaspersistentstreakyspace in her right lower lower lower duetoscarring left behind by the center of Europe Due to the scar left by recent (walking) pneumonia, chest X-ray showed striped opacity (unclear stripes) in the lower right lobe. Excuse me: 1 What do you mean by cloudy stripes (unclear stripes)? What's the impact? 2. Will this scar heal and disappear? Or forever? 3. How can walking pneumonia be cured? Is he recovering soon? Can he get the flu vaccine or the vaccine related to walking pneumonia? thank you!
According to your description, the patient's lung inflammation is mainly caused by fungal infection. At present, the chest X-ray stripe is also the lung texture. Turbidity should mean that the inflammation has not completely subsided and can continue symptomatic treatment. Most patients can be cured without leaving permanent scars. The main standard of cure is the disappearance of clinical symptoms and negative imaging findings, Then consider vaccination.
In fact, the meaning of unclear stripe turbidity is that there may be the impact caused by previous lung infection. This may be a big change and little impact, so don't worry. If it is caused by this scar healing, there is no way to disappear. In the case of nephritis, I suggest you can use antibiotics and stop using drugs during the treatment, You can get the flu vaccine in 12 hours.
Hello, combined with your relevant description of your friend, first of all, in terms of medical diagnosis, there is no so-called diagnosis name of walking or mobile pneumonia. Combined with your description of your friend, it is preliminarily considered as fungal infectious pneumonia. Even after being cured, there may be signs left, which can be treated by antifungal treatment.
The cause of the infection may be your friend. Because I didn't wear a mask, I accidentally inhaled the fungal substances released by the mushrooms in the yard into my lungs. In addition, I'm older and may be weak, so I was infected with fungal pneumonia. The above imaging description is the performance in the recovery of fungal infection, which may not disappear completely. Now that the infection is in the recovery and dissipation period, I don't recommend influenza vaccination for the time being. I can wait until the patient fully recovers, There is no vaccine to prevent fungal pneumonia in China.
