Abstract:   (201 Views)
Pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by the formation of calcium phosphate deposition in the alveoli. Although the disease most often occurs in children, most patients with the disease are diagnosed in adulthood due to the slow progression of the disease inside the lungs. In childhood, it often causes no symptoms, and changes in the lung parenchyma are usually detected by chance. Symptoms usually appear in the third or fourth decade of life. Diagnosis is made with a combination of positive chest radiography and tissue examination. Genetic testing makes it possible to identify other unidentified patients in the patient's family. In the present study, a patient with pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis was diagnosed using imaging and other disease findings, including clinical manifestations as well as history is taken from the patient.
