Pneumonia caused by infection with Streptococcus that localizes in and/or around the bronchi Streptococcal pneumonia
The presence of air or gas in the subcutaneous tissues of the body Subcutaneous emphysema
Pleural effusions resulting from microvascular changes such as those associated with heart failure or ascites Transudates
