18 Possible Causes for Honeycomb Lung on Chest X-Ray, Reticulonodular Pattern

  • Pulmonary Histiocytosis X

    Diagnosis was suspected when a reticulonodular pattern was detected by conventional X-ray or by computerized tomography of the lungs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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] Imaging: His CXR shows a bilateral, predominantly mid- and upper-zone reticulonodular pattern with some small cystic areas in the upper lobes.[ucdenver.edu]

  • Diffuse Pulmonary Lymphangiomatosis

    In this article, we mainly focus on diffuse infiltration patterns, such as ground glass and reticulonodular infiltrations as described in high-resolution computed tomography[paperity.org]

  • Langerhans-Cell Histiocytosis

    Plain radiograph The earliest change is a diffuse bilateral symmetrical reticulonodular pattern with a predilection for the mid and upper zones.[radiopaedia.org] 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]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Note the small lung fields and peripheral pattern of reticulonodular opacification.[en.wikipedia.org] 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]

  • Chronic Interstitial Lung Disease

    Chest Roentgenography Early: normal to ground-glass pattern and nodular, reticular or reticulonodular patterns.[lumen.luc.edu] Chest x-ray view showing diffuse interstitial markings consistent with chronic interstitial lung disease.[consultant360.com] Chest radiographs and HRCT scans show thickening of the walls of the bronchi and ground glass or small reticulonodular patterns.[archbronconeumol.org]

  • Acute Interstitial Lung Disease

    Chest Roentgenography Early: normal to ground-glass pattern and nodular, reticular or reticulonodular patterns.[lumen.luc.edu] Diagnosis The common diagnostic tests are chest x-ray, chest CT scan, and lung biopsy.[child-foundation.org] Chest radiographs showed reticular or reticulonodular infiltrates in five patients and a ground glass pattern in two.[thedoctorsdoctor.com]

  • Interstitial Pulmonary Fibrosis of the Newborn

    Chest radiographs and HRCT scans show thickening of the walls of the bronchi and ground glass or small reticulonodular patterns.[archbronconeumol.org] Reticulonodular interstitial pattern, perihilar fibrosis, pleural thickening on chest radiographs, septal thickening, ground-glass opacities and peribronchovascular thickening[err.ersjournals.com] The radiographic features associated with DILD are ground glass opacities; reticular, small nodular, and reticulonodular patterns; and honeycombing.[archbronconeumol.org]

  • Extrinsic Allergic Alveolitis

    Chest X-ray showed diffuse initial changes of reticulonodular pattern that disappeared after a brief course of steroids therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] x-ray : upper-zone fibrosis (as opposed to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis which tends to be bi-basal), honeycomb lung, cardiomegaly (if cor pulmonale) PA CXR in a patient[clumsylostmedicalstudent.wordpress.com] Chronic : ground-glass attenuation with honeycombing ( fibrotic changes) /- emphysema Pulmonary function test : : restrictive or mixed restrictive / obstructive pattern Particularly[amboss.com]

  • Pulmonary Sarcoidosis

    (46%) · Acinar pattern (20%) · Larger nodules · “Alveolar sarcoid” (2%) · Coalescence of numerous interstitial granulomas · Air bronchograms present · DDX: Alveolar cell[learningradiology.com] […] is variable: punctate, amorphous, or eggshell (5%) 1,3 Patterns of pulmonary disease on plain radiograph include: reticulonodular opacities most common: 75-90% of stage II[radiopaedia.org] […] features of sarcoidosis Reticular opacities Reticulonodular opacities Focal alveolar opacities Sarcoidosis.[slideshare.net]

  • Silicosis

    […] disease The classic form is much more common than the acute form and can be classified as simple or complicated, according to the radiographic findings: simple silicosis: pattern[radiopaedia.org] […] by their temporal relationship to the exposure to silica: acute silicosis: manifests as alveolar silicoproteinosis classic silicosis: manifests as a chronic interstitial reticulonodular[radiopaedia.org]
