Serious lung problem

yborgalMarch 30, 2006

I just spoke to my 74 yr old aunt who visited with us at the beginning of March. She is/was the picture of health; eats well, exercises,non-smoker, etc and has had no health problems. I just learned she returned to NY from our home with a cough and breathing problems that have left her dependent on oxygen 24 hrs a day. Scans and x-rays find multiple lesions on her lungs and she's scheduled for a biposy. She can barely speak and is chair/bed ridden. I'm stunned. What could cause such a sudden major lung/bronchial problem?

A bacterial or viral infection. Maybe a fungal infection.
