Mycoplasma pneumoniae usually causes only mild respiratory disease. Severe respiratory failure associated with bronchiolitis is extremely unusual. We describe an in-family spread of M. pneumoniae infection. The father, a 28-year-old smoker male with no previous medical history developed acute bronchiolitis with severe respiratory failure due to M. pneumoniae. He recovered after treatment with combination of antibiotics and corticosteroids. The patient's 55-year-old mother and 2-year-old daughter developed mycoplasma pneumonia, while his 25-year-old wife developed an upper respiratory tract infection. They were also treated successfully with macrolides.

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive fatal lung disease characterised by persistent pulmonary inflammation. Approximately 2% of cases are familial. Herein, we describe a family in which four members over two generations developed IPF. Of particular interest, the age of onset was lower in the second generation affected by the disease. Familial IPF offers a unique opportunity to study the proinflammatory processes implicated in IPF.

In this report, we describe an unusual case of disseminated tuberculosis (DTB) with pulmonary infiltrates, pleural effusion, miliary tuberculosis (MTB), cervical and mediastinal lymphadenopathy, tubercular arthritis, psoas abscess and severe anemia. Although the patient was immunocompetent, the disease had a gradual and unexpected progression. Tuberculosis can be present in multiple sites, especially in patients from areas where tuberculosis is endemic. An early diagnosis and prompt initiation of anti-tuberculosis treatment for appropriate duration ensures recovery even in complicated cases. In the malign forms of tuberculosis, treatment must be extended for a year or more. Response to anti-tuberculosis treatment was favorable in...
