  1. Alveolar macrophages and the diagnosis of drowning.

    Article - En anglais

    In the present study, we examined the number of alveolar macrophages in lung tissue from 17 cases of fresh water drowning, 22 cases of acute death and 6 cases of lung emphysema.

    When counting only the number of alveolar macrophages per alveolus without consideration of the alveolar size we found no relevant differences between the groups investigated.

    To exclude any influence of the alveolar size on the results the surface density of the alveolar macrophages and interstitial tissue was estimated and compared in the different groups.

    In cases of drowning, the lungs showed significantly lower values in both categories.
