Imaging Case of the Month for July

Make your diagnosis

Submitted by Michael Witkosky, M.D., and Katherine Haker, M.D., of the S. Mark Taper Foundation Imaging Center.

History:

A 68-year-old female with dyspnea on exertion underwent a CT coronary angiogram as part of her workup. The CTA showed no evidence of coronary atherosclerosis, however, an abnormal appearance of her lungs prompted a CT of the chest for further evaluation.  

Question: Which answer best describes the pertinent findings?

  • Irregular, small nodules and bizarre shaped cysts, surrounded by normal lung
  • Multiple solid and cystic nodules in a predominately central and dorsal distribution
  • Diffuse bilateral thin walled cysts with normal intervening lung
  • Multiple thin walled cysts involving less than 10 percent of the lung
