Alveolar Lung Pattern



Cranioventral

Aspiration pneumonia

Lung lobe torsion

(left cranial and right middle lung lobes)

Bronchopneumonia

Caudodorsal

Non-cardiogenic pulmonary oedema

  • Neurogenic causes (e.g. postictal, electric shock, cranial trauma)
  • Asphyxia (e.g. brachycephalic dogs, strangulation, laryngeal disease)
  • Hypalbuminaemia
  • Near drowning
  • Smoke inhalation
  • Toxic
  • Anaphylactic reactions
  • Multisystemic - inflammatory & non-inflammatory diseases
    (e.g. uraemia, septicaemia, acute pancreatitis)
  • Neoplasia
    (bronchial carcinoma possibly more than one lobe; histiocytic sarcoma)
  • Inhaled foreign bodies (e.g. grass awn, FB usually not visible)

Peripheral

Infarction

(Lung-)worms

(Angiostrongylus vasorum; Crenosoma vulpis (in combination with bronchial lung pattern))
