Abstract

Eight patients with diffuse panbronchiolitis were evaluated with chest radiograph and high-resolution computed tomography(HRCT). Paients consisted of 5 med and 3 women, aged 27-75 years(average, 54 years). Chest radiographic findings were diffuse small nodular densities, linear shadows, and thickened bronchial wall predominantly in both lower lung fields. All 8 patients had pansinusitis. On HRCT, small nodules and branching linear structures, 1-3mm internal to the pleural surface, representing centrilobular bronchiolar lesion, were found along with thickening of medium and small sized bronchial wall. These nodules did not show coalescence. In conclusion, chest radiographs were usually suggestive and high-resolution CT was diagnostic of diffuse panbronchiolitis.
