    1. Pio says:

      centrilobular pattern of nodules, with ground glass attenuation. I chose number 4, my type is extrinsic alveolitis or maybe RBILD

    2. gaborini says:

      hypersensitive pneumonitis

    3. Andy says:

      I think, none of the above ..

    4. Vilma says:

      ill-defined nodules in centrilobular distribution, air trapping and diffuse groundglass opacities – hypersensitive pneumonitis.

      …patologia diffusa a patter micro nodulare : tali micro noduli sono uniformemente diffusi, ” indifferenti” alla pleura, a non elevata densità’ e margini ” flou” . Non adenopatie ilo- mediastiniche….si esclude pertanto la tbc miliare, la sarcodiosi, le metastasi….non capisco l’istoplasmosi….dovrebbe trattarsi di una LIP( linfocitaria interstiziopatia polmonare)….. Come risponde al cortisone?…..Buon anno , mitico professore !!!!!

      4.Faint ill-defined centrilobular nodularity, ground-glass opacities, air trapping, mid/lower zone predominance
      Subacute hypersensitivity pneumonitis.

    7. Yvette says:

      Centrilobular nodules, ground glass opacification, air trapping , no hilar lymphadenopathy -pattern atypical for sarcoidosis. Miliary tb – patient usually in very poor clinical condition. Pulmonary histiocytosis early stage – patient is rather too old. The most probable is hypersensitivity pneumonitis subacute phase. We don’t have any clinical information about exsposition to alergic factors.
