Hi Barbie,

It means you need to speak with your doctor/pulmonologist.

Fibrohazed opacities are areas on the x-ray that appear "cloudy."  They should not be there.  From the film they appear to be "fibrous" in nature, it can indicate scar tissue.  This can indicate a past or present infection including the possibility of PTB.

You'll need more testing.

Good luck.

They need to determine what is causing the densities. If it is an infection, possibly PTB, then an antibiotic will help. The scarring will remain however. Just like when you cut your skin, damage to the lungs produces scar tissues.

Antibiotics are "targeted" for specific infections. If it is an infection you need the right antibiotic.

You need sputum tests, possibly even a biopsy. Skin tests may also be required.

Hi Ronel,

Clarithromycin alone is not used to treat TB. It is used to treat pneumonia and similar diseases. There are benefits to using clarithromycin with OTHER TB fighting drugs.

I'm curious as to why your doctor prescribed it. The dosage is correct.

If I was your doctor I'd be doing more testing, such as a sputum analysis, before prescribing an antibiotic.

Antibiotics are great but they really need to be matched to the infection. Giving the wrong antibiotic can make some diseases more difficult to treat. Since your doctor did say "TB" then he must be aware that drug resistant TB is on the rise.

The big issue with Clarithomycin is that it is a "narrow spectrum" antibiotic. It's meant to target specific diseases - you need to identify the disease before prescribing.

There are "broad spectrum" antibiotics work against a wider range of infections.

Air won't show in the x-ray. A cold is usually upper respiratory - sinuses, etc. No. It would need to be something like pneumonia to show in the lungs.
