31 Possible Causes for Honeycomb Lung on Chest X-Ray

Show results in: Română

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Chest X-ray and CT showed ground-glass opacities in both lungs in addition to preexisting honeycombing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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.[merckmanuals.com] Small cystic lesions (honeycombing) and dilated airways due to traction bronchiectasis are additional findings.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Acute Interstitial Lung Disease

    Diagnosis The common diagnostic tests are chest x-ray, chest CT scan, and lung biopsy.[child-foundation.org] 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.[eplerhealth.com] High-resolution CT scans show patchy or geographic ground glass opacity initially, followed by architectural distortion (honeycomb appearance with small cystic spaces surrounded[child-foundation.org]

  • Asbestosis

    Your doctor may also order X-rays to look for a white or honeycomb appearance on your lungs or chest.[healthline.com] Severe asbestosis may affect the whole lung and have a honeycomb look on the x-ray pictures. If you have lung cancer , a chest x ray may show masses or abnormal fluid.[nhlbi.nih.gov] The size, shape, location, and degree of whiteness can help your doctor figure out how much lung damage you have.[nhlbi.nih.gov]

  • 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[en.wikipedia.org] Radiology will show osteolytic bone lesions and damage to the lung.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • 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.[eplerhealth.com] The chest x-ray in NIP shows patchy infiltrates in both lungs and sometimes small linear opacities at the lung bases.[eplerhealth.com] The lung function studies show decreases in the vital capacity and the diffusing capacity. The chest x-ray usually shows small linear opacities at the lung bases.[eplerhealth.com]

  • Pulmonary Histiocytosis X

    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[en.wikipedia.org] Radiology will show osteolytic bone lesions and damage to the lung.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Interstitial Pulmonary Fibrosis of the Newborn

    Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD), also referred to as pulmonary fibrosis or interstitial pneumonia, comprises a group of conditions characterized by inflammation and scarring around the tiny air sacs (alveoli) in the lungs. This lung remodeling leads to a decrease in the ability of the lungs to take in oxygen that makes[…][brighamandwomens.org]

  • Pneumoconiosis

    Abstract BACKGROUND Accumulating evidence shows that functional impairment in subjects with coal workers' pneumoconiosis (CWP) is principally due to emphysema and airflow obstruction, rather than underlying restrictive mechanisms. However, cigarette smoking has remained a major confounder. The aim of this study[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Sarcoidosis

    Abstract In sarcoidosis, increased Th17 cell fractions have been reported in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, and elevated numbers of Th17 cells producing IFN- γ have been observed in peripheral blood. The balance between Th1, Th17, and FoxP3( ) CD4( ) T cell subsets in sarcoidosis remains unclear. Bronchoalveolar lavage[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Viral Pneumonia

    Abstract The recognition of viruses as causes of pneumonia in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised hosts has expanded dramatically. The number of therapeutic agents available for treatment of these illness also has increased in the last decade. Each of these agents has demonstrated a limited therapeutic[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
