This patient has a history of AIDS with very low CD4 count and came in with respiratory distress:
This Xray shows a diffuse pulmonary infiltrates, bilateral pleural effusions. There is an endotracheal tube near the carina, it could come back a couple centimeters. He also has a nasogastric tube coursing below the diaphragm.
What is the differential diagnosis of a multilobar pneumonia such as this in an AIDS patient? Comments appreciated!
