Radiographic features resemble coins or cavitations, whereas CT shows a ground glass-opacity halo or reticulonodular pattern
Chest radiographs typically show a fine reticular or reticulonodular pattern
involving the lower lung zones in early stages.
Chest X-ray showed bilateral lower zone reticulonodular pattern
. DHS was confirmed based on above clinical features and laboratory investigations.
In our patient, bilateral alveolar infiltrations in basal segments of the lung followed by reticulonodular pattern
were registered on the chest CT.
Disseminated pulmonary infection can manifest as a miliary or reticulonodular pattern
Chest radiograph and computed tomography on admission showed reticulonodular pattern
at both lung fields.
CT scan findings were classified as atelectasis, collapse, lung mass, reticulonodular pattern
, plural effusion, cavitation, diffuse calcification, patchy infiltration, or bronchiectasis.
Two showed reticulonodular pattern
and one had normal pulmonary parenchyma with mediastinal widening.
The chest X ray may show an alveolar process, reticulonodular pattern
, and evidence of fibrosis.
Of 51 patients, 16 patients (31.37%) had cavitary lesions on their chest x-ray, 14 patients (27.45%) had consolidation, 2 patients (3.92%) had reticulonodular pattern
, 1 patient (1.96%) had pleomorphic pattern, 4 patients (7.84%) had mass lesions, 4 patients (7.84%) had fibrosis, 2 patients (3.92%) had reticular pattern, 5 patients (9.80%) had bronchiectatic changes and 3 patients (5.88%) had collapse, Graph-2, 3.
The radiograph showed a diffuse reticulonodular pattern
worse in the upper lung zones with some pleural thickening noted on the right.
