Hello Fitriani, thank you for asking.
Lung spots are actually an old term that is rarely used. The more appropriate term is pulmonary TB. In children, pulmonary TB is indeed not easily diagnosed, because sometimes the symptoms and signs are not typical, and radiological examination is not always appropriate. Generally a diagnosis of pediatric TB must be based on scoring. Scoring includes a history of illness, symptoms and physical signs, as well as supporting examinations such as radiological examinations.
On chest X-ray examination found spots on the middle part of the lung that describe the process of infection or inflammation. The picture is caused by the presence of air space filled with mucus. Mucus is produced excessively due to inflammation. Mucus causes the lungs to appear whiter in the middle. The presence of mucus causes interference with the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide, thus causing shortness of breath. Infection can be caused by TB germs or other microorganisms.
Please bring the results back to the treating doctor. The doctor has the right to state whether your child has repeat pulmonary TB or not. Radiological examination results must be adjusted to the results of physical examination.
Thus my explanation, hopefully useful. Regards.
