The High-Resolution CT scan Findings in Familial Interstitial Pneumonia Do Not Conform to Those of Idiopathic Interstitial Pneumonia
Chest, 06/04/2012Lee HY et al.
Reticulation and mixed ground–glass opacity (GGO)/reticular pattern are the most common high–resolution computed tomographic (HRCT) findings in FIP. The parenchymal abnormalities are most often diffuse in the craniocaudal dimension, and have a predominantly peripheral distribution in the axial dimension. Although a radiologic UIP pattern is not uncommon, most cases do not conform to typical UIP or NSIP patterns.
