47 Respiratory syncytial virus pneumonia demonstrates peribronchial thickening, lobar pneumonia, and heterogeneity with hyperinflated sections. (A) Frontal radiograph of the chest shows bilateral areas of dense opacity with faint air bronchograms in the right upper and left lower lobes. (B) On a subsequent examination obtained a few days later, more prominent parahilar peribronchial infiltrates, typical of viral pneumonitis, are appreciated. The lungs are markedly hyperinflated, left greater than right; note flattening of the bilateral hemidiaphragms.

The term “ground glass” is often used to describe the appearance of this and moderate disease. e. not behind the cardiac shadow which is a normal variant), with the cardiac border blurred. In severe disease, the lung fields are completely opaque and indistinguishable from the cardiac shadow. Lung volume is not a very specific radiological sign, and alters with degree of positive pressure ventilation, as described above. Primary surfactant deficiency Antenatal corticosteroids administered to a mother with impending preterm delivery ameliorate the severity of RDS in her preterm infant (and also reduce the frequency of intraventricular hemorrhage [IVH] and necrotizing enterocolitis).

Late presentation: these are often nosocomial infections, and frequently complicate mechanical ventilation. Common pathogens include Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus aureus, Gram negative rods including Pseudomonas, and Candida (especially in very low birth weight infants). Nosocomial viral infections such as rhinovirus, respiratory syncytial virus, and influenza may also present with similar features to other late-onset pneumonias. General radiographic appearances As compared with RDS, the lungs are more expanded and the densities are often more patchy.
