40 Possible Causes for Honeycomb Lung on Chest X-Ray

  • Honeycomb Lung

    22 - Honeycomb lung on chest X-ray causes Here is a list of all the causes which result in the Honeycomb appearance of the lung on chest X-ray : 1. Cystic fibrosis 2.[] lung An abnormal appearance of the lungs seen on chest x-ray exam, in which small cystic spaces alternate with coarsely increased interstitial markings.[] Dilated and thickened terminal and respiratory bronchioles produce cystic airspaces, giving honeycomb appearance on chest x-ray.[]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Chest X-ray and CT showed ground-glass opacities in both lungs in addition to preexisting honeycombing.[] Diagnosis requires HRCT and in some cases surgical lung biopsy. Chest x-ray typically shows diffuse reticular opacities in the lower and peripheral lung zones.[] Small cystic lesions (honeycombing) and dilated airways due to traction bronchiectasis are additional findings.[]

  • Desquamative Interstitial Pneumonia

    The chest x-ray in AIP shows dense infiltrates in both sides. The chest CT scan confirms these infiltrates and in some situations, may show honeycombing.[] Interstitial lung disease investigations Investigation Possible findings Routine at baseline and follow up Chest X-ray Non-specific infiltrates HRCT scan Nodules Cysts Ground[] The chest x-ray in NIP shows patchy infiltrates in both lungs and sometimes small linear opacities at the lung bases.[]

  • Acute Interstitial Lung Disease

    Diagnosis The common diagnostic tests are chest x-ray, chest CT scan, and lung biopsy.[] (Top left) Chest Xray showing diffuse reticular infiltrates in both lung fields.[] The chest x-ray in AIP shows dense infiltrates in both sides. The chest CT scan confirms these infiltrates and in some situations, may show honeycombing.[]

  • Langerhans-Cell Histiocytosis

    The latter may be evident in chest X-rays with micronodular and interstitial infiltrate in the mid and lower zone of lung, with sparing of the Costophrenic angle or honeycomb[] Radiology will show osteolytic bone lesions and damage to the lung.[]

  • Chronic Interstitial Lung Disease

    Chest x-ray view showing diffuse interstitial markings consistent with chronic interstitial lung disease.[] […] the clinical diagnosis of IPF without surgical lung biopsy.[] Classic HRCT findings of honeycombing, traction bronchiectasis, and peripheral bibasilar reticular abnormalities without ground glass opacities is typically enough to make[]

  • Pulmonary Sarcoidosis

    We present the case of a 71-year-old woman with a long-standing history of refractory pulmonary sarcoidosis, who, upon commencement of treatment with lenalidomide for her newly diagnosed 5q-myelodysplastic syndrome, showed a remarkable, immediate, unexpected response and recovery of her sarcoidosis-related[…][]
