Abscessing pneumonia

  • Lung covered with smooth, slightly dark, intense visceral pleura.
  • On cut surface appear numerous dense, buttorn, airless areas with bright centre and grayish-whitish periphery – ‘cockarde pneumonia’ (as a cup badge).When pressed turbid exudate leaks out from them.
  • If their size is from millimeters up to several centimeters – lobular pneumonia.
  • In many places adjacent inflammatory areas merge – confluent pneumonia.
