  • Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia

    The left X-ray shows a much more subtle ground-glass appearance while the right X-ray shows a much more gross ground-glass appearance mimicking pulmonary edema. [3] X-ray[] High-resolution computed tomography reveals interlobular septal thickening and patchy areas resembling a ground-glass appearance.[] Both show ground glass opacities.[]
