I undergo for thoracostomy tube insertion last February 1 2016 and has been on my first month of treatment for PTB. I had a Chest Xray and suggested to have a Apico View, the result is Hazy infiltrates on Left Upper Lobe, Pneumonia Vs Kocks. My question is can hazy infiltrate remove on my left lung after I finish my 6month treatment. Hoping for your reply. Thank you

Hi Guest,

It depends upon the cause.  If it is pneumonia it will clear but any scarring from PTB (Koch's Disease) will be permanent and it can/does present on an x-ray.
