Idiopathic pneumonia syndrome after bone marrow transplantation presenting with "crazy-paving" pattern on high-resolution computed tomography: a case report.

Gasparetto TD, Marchiori E, Guimarães MB, Escuissato DL, Zanetti G - Cases J (2008)

Bottom Line: The main finding consisted of extensive ground-glass opacities superimposed to mild interlobular septal thickening, resulting in the appearance termed "crazy-paving".Following the clinical, laboratorial and imaging criteria, the diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary syndrome was defined and corticosteroids were introduced.The clinical symptoms improved in the following days, and the patient was discharged from the hospital.

ABSTRACT
The authors present the high-resolution computed tomography findings of a patient with idiopathic pneumonia syndrome after bone marrow transplantation. The main finding consisted of extensive ground-glass opacities superimposed to mild interlobular septal thickening, resulting in the appearance termed "crazy-paving". Following the clinical, laboratorial and imaging criteria, the diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary syndrome was defined and corticosteroids were introduced. The clinical symptoms improved in the following days, and the patient was discharged from the hospital.

Figure 1: A and B: High resolution CT of the lungs demonstrates diffuse ground-glass attenuation with superimposed interlobular septal thickening ("crazy-paving" pattern), mainly in the superior lobes.

Mentions: The chest X-ray findings were unremarkable. The high-resolution CT scan demonstrated a bilateral lesion, characterized by ground-glass opacities superimposed to interlobular septal thickening ("crazy-paving" pattern), predominating in the superior lobes (figure 1). Isolated areas of ground-glass attenuation were also seen in both lungs.
