Lungs Match patients with lung descriptions!

(A) A lung that is soft, has a fluffy consistency, and has multiple blebs over the surface
(B) A lung that is very heavy and exudes frothy and bloody fluid freely from the cut surface
(C) A lung with diffuse fibrotic nodules with a whorled appearance replacing normal lung parenchyma
(D) A lung with the left lower lobe having a liver-like consistency; microscopically contains fibrin and neutrophils in the alveoli
(E) A normal-appearing lung with a large Y-shaped, coiled, laminated clot almost filling both pulmonary arteries

For each patient described, select the most likely pulmonary
finding at autopsy.

134. A 45-year-old woman with alcoholism is admitted to the hospital with fever and blood-tinged sputum. She dies 2 days after admission.

135. A 54-year-old man is admitted to the hospital with an acute myocardial infarct. He develops crackles, has marked difficulty breathing, and dies 3 days later.
