Shelby Boykin (144376)
  • 5 mo F Chihuahua
  • Chronic cough x 4 months, increasing in severity and frequency recently
  • History of green nasal discharge, especially when cough is worse
  • Multiple courses of antibiotics = improvement/resolution of clinical signs
  • No known history of trauma
  • ~25 other dogs at home
further diagnostics
Further Diagnostics
  • Bronchoscopy:
    • Sacculated appearance to left sided bronchi
    • Possible blind-ended bronchi
    • Mucus
    • Right sided airways are abnormal too
  • BAL:
    • Septic, suppurative inflammation
  • CT:
  • Could this be congenital bronchial atresia/dysplasia?
  • Is this all secondary to previous infections?
bronchiolitis obliterans
Bronchiolitis Obliterans
  • Nonspecific response to lung damage
    • Epithelial necrosis leads to bronchiole occlusion with fibro-cartilaginous tissue
  • Can be due to inhaled irritants/toxins, parasites, viral, fungal, bacterial infections
    • Damage to bronchiolar epithelium  formation of polyps of collagen, fibroblasts, inflammatory cells  polyps can cause complete obstruction of airway
  • Causes irreversible airflow obstruction
  • Reported in dogs, pigs, cattle, rodents, humans (especially after lung and stem cell transplants)—often fatal



Fibrobascular polyps in a bronchiole with necrosis and inflammatory cell infiltration

  • Atelectasis, discoloration of lung lobes
post infectious bronchiolitis obliterans is recognized in pediatrics
Post-Infectious BronchiolitisObliterans is Recognized in Pediatrics
  • Associated with adenovirus, Mycoplasma, flu, syncytial virus, etc
  • Histopath: granulation tissue plugs within the lumens of small airways and/or complete destruction of airways leaving a scar
  • Imaging:
    • Bronchogram: “pruned tree”
    • HRCT: bronchial dilation, wall thickening, parenchymal and vascular attenuation, areas of collapse, air trapping during expiration
    • NucMed: patchy decreases in ventilation and perfusion
    • CXR: variable but can include
      • unilateral hyperlucency of all/part of a lung which is enlarged
      • persistent collapse of affected lobe (up to 8 years post in one study)
in the literature you may also see boop
In the Literature You May Also See BOOP
  • BronchiolitisObliterans with Organizing Pneumonia
    • Often reserved for idiopathic version in humans (newer literature uses Cryptogenic Organizing Pneumonia), used somewhat interchangeably in vet med
  • Case report of 8 yo FS mixed breed with exercise intolerance and dyspneax 1 mo
    • CXR: diffuse interstitial, BAL: mucus without inflammation, CT: bronchiectasis, patchy consolidation
    • Diagnosis via histopath
    • Interestingly, dog had pulmonary hypertension so this could be a rule out for corpulmonale
    • Treated with steroids
boop continued
BOOP Continued…
  • Animal model of BOOP with oleic acid injury
    • ARDS involves diffuse injury to capillary/alveolar endothelium leading to leakage  edema
    • BOOP primarily affects distal airways and adjacent alvoeli and has airway plugging
  • BUT both could look similar on radiographs
so what
So What?
  • Shelby remains a mystery
  • Bronchial atresia/dyplasia seems unlikely given the normal radiographs, unilateral appearance
  • BOOP (idiopathic entitiy) seems unlikely because Shelby’s disease is not limited to PERIPHERAL airways & her imaging does not fit the few case reports
  • Post-infectious bronchiolitisobliterans ….. Still an option?
  • Ultimately needs histopathology
  • As of 12/19 @ 12pm, Shelby is stable, but in oxygen
