I was advised to to have an apicolodotic x-ray and the result is like this.. Non- specific pneumonitis right upper lungfield . Koch's etiology not ruled out. What does this means?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The report shows evidence of infection/inflammation of right upper lung field. Koch's is Tuberculosis, or TB, is an infectious bacterial disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which most commonly affects the lungs. It is transmitted from person to person via droplets from the throat and lungs of people with the active respiratory disease. It usually affects the upper lobes of the lung. This is correlated with clinical symptoms , like cough, evening rise of temperature, weight loss and blood tests, which will show a raised ESR and increased lymphocyte count, if it is an active infection. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
