Lobar Pneumonia

leave a comment »

  • Pneumococcal >> Klebsiella >> mycoplasma >> legionella
  • Inflammation begins in distal airspaces and spreads via pore of Kohn and canals of Lambert
  • Nonsegmental consolidation, eventually causing lobar consolidation
  • Predominantly lower lobes and posterior segment upper lobes
  • Spares airways = air bronchograms
  • Volume loss is common
