  • Figure 1
    Chest x-ray

    Plain chest film showing multiple, diffuse, small nodular opacities, with random distribution. Some of them were dense suggesting calcification. In the right peri-hilar region a spiculated nodule was observed.

     
    Area of Interest: Lung; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Infection;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    CT imaging
     

    Coronal CT scan showing multiple pulmonary nodules with random distribution, and well-defined edges. They varied from 2 to 5 mm in diameter. They were not cavitated.

     
    Area of Interest: Thorax; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Infection;

    Axial CT scan using lung window shows multiple pulmonary nodules with random distribution, and well-defined edges. They varied from 2 to 5 mm in diameter. They were not cavitated.

     
    Area of Interest: Lung; Imaging Technique: CT-High Resolution; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Infection;

    Axial CT scan image using bone window settings shows a few calcified small nodules in the left upper lobe.

     
    Area of Interest: Lung; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Infection;

    Axial CT scan showing in the inferior right lobe a subpleural spiculated nodule with 30 x 18 x 29 mm, with some calcifications. This lesion was biopsed which revealed undifferentiated adenocarcinoma.
