Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal


We have retrospectively reviewed our bronchoscopic experience in patients with suspected pulmonary complications of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) or AIDS-related complex at Henry Ford Hospital between 1984 and 1986. The charts of 52 patients, representing a total of 87 bronchoscopic examinations, were available for review. The bronchoscopic findings as well as correlative chest roentgenograms and arterial blood gases are reviewed, and implications for therapy are discussed.
