Hi, the infiltrate as it is in the apical portion of the lung, it’s likely to be due to tuberculosis. It has an increased predilection for the apical portion of the lungs. It is not caused by virus, its a bacterial infection and can be treated. The findings are correlated with clinical symptoms 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. Regards.
