Acute Necrotising Pneumonia with Bronchiectatic Changes and Transaminitis following Kerosene Ingestion: An Unusual Acute Presentation

Acute Necrotising Pneumonia with Bronchiectatic Changes and Transaminitis following Kerosene Ingestion: An Unusual Acute Presentation

Hydrocarbon exposures are frequent and account for an inordinate number of health care visits and hospital admissions. There are very few case reports of bronchiectasis due to kerosene ingestion in literature. A 16 year old girl with history of kerosene ingestion presented with features of acute onset respiratory distress which resulted from bilateral pneumonia progressing to bilateral pleural effusion. It eventually leads to necrotising pneumonitis with mostly right lung bronchiectasis. It was controlled successfully with antibiotics and pulmonary physiotherapy. She had Transaminitis which resolved spontaneously.
