    How 'bout pneumonia? That's the only time I've seen it.

    The only PNA I found was perinephric abscess...but not in the lungs?? Were there other symptoms like UTI?? or was this Dx for the lungs?

    Let us know if/when you find out! I'm curious now.

    I found that PNA stands for polynitroxyl-albumin and it did seem to have something to do with the lungs. However, I didn't read too in depth on it. But it might be worth looking into.

    Look on medilexicon.com and see if you find an answer that fits when you enter PNA in the part that finds the expansion for acronyms. I don't know if that will help, but it's my favorite site for medical acronyms.
