Abstract

MARCHIORI, Edson et al. Lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia: correlation of high-resolution computed tomography findings with anatomopathology.. Radiol Bras [online]. 2002, vol.35, n.4, pp. 199-203. ISSN 0100-3984.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842002000400004.

The purpose of this study is to report the main high-resolution computed tomography findings of two patients with lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia. High-resolution computed tomography findings were correlated with pathology findings of material obtained from open biopsies. One patient had diffuse ground glass opacities seen on high-resolution computed tomography whereas the other patient had peribroncovascular thickening. Anatomopathology studies showed that the main pattern was polyclonal lymphocyte interstitial infiltration, particularly along alveolar septa. The current study demonstrated a close correlation between high-resolution computed tomography and anatomopathology findings.
