Dunham's triangles

A near-extinct term that eponymously dignifies a radiologic finding typical of silicosis (e.g., sharply circumscribed nodules—coin lesions—with triangular fibrocalcific streaks), the radiologic finding known as "egg-shell calcification”, which is the most recognised and commonly sought finding of silicosis.
