Chest pain was observed in 80% patients, sign of consolidation in all patients, air space pneumonia in 86% patients, interstitial infiltrate
in 22% subjects and bilateral opacities in 83% patients.
In contrast to the polymorphous interstitial infiltrate
in LIP, interstitial patterns of low-grade B-cell lymphoma have a monomorphous appearance.
2] The characteristic appearance of PCP on the chest x-ray film is that of bilateral interstitial infiltrates
Three months after treatment, repeat imaging showed improvement of the interstitial infiltrates
(Figure 1) and repeat pulmonary function testing showed improvement of the restrictive pathology findings and diffusion capacity (FVC: 3.
3) Radiological findings Sole interstitial infiltrates
, 5 (21.
The underlying dermis had multifocal perivascular and interstitial infiltrates
composed of lymphocytes and plasma cells (Fig 3).
4,5] HP is histologically characterized by the triad of non Necrotising granulomas, chronic inflammatory change in small airways and diffuse interstitial infiltrates
of chronic inflammatory cells.
A chest radiograph revealed diffuse bilateral nodular interstitial infiltrates
Chest radiography revealed bilateral interstitial infiltrates
At the time of presentation she was being treated with 4 antituberculosis drugs for 34 days determined by bilateral reticulonodular interstitial infiltrates
in her chest X-ray (Figure 1A) and chest computed tomography (chest CT).
Two formats were used for this readings: I) conventional, in which the presence, localization and type of infiltrates were evaluated, discriminating between alveolar infiltrates (with or without air bronchogram), and interstitial infiltrates
(of nodular, reticular or mixed types); unilobar or multilobar infiltrates, and pleural effusion; and II) quantitative scale, which assigns a score according to the extension of the pulmonary injury, determined by the number of affected intercostal spaces.
However, in a substantial proportion of patients, the respiratory phase is characterized by early focal interstitial infiltrates
progressing to more generalized, patchy, interstitial infiltrates
Computerized tomography (CT) scanning of the thorax revealed bilateral alveolar or interstitial infiltrates
in all the patients, except the case with pleura-based 67x30x30mm opacity in the anterior segment of the right upper lobe.
A chest radiograph revealed bilateral interstitial infiltrates
3] and her chest X-ray showed interstitial infiltrates
with fine nodularity more pronounced in the right lower zone than on the left (Fig.
