A female, 28-year patient was submitted to tonsillectomy and developed respiratory medication, radiographic images (same views) revealed the opacities disappearance (Figure 1B)... classes, namely, type I NPPE caused by upper airway obstruction such as, for example, Despite the nonspecificity of the radiological pattern, the preoperative history of the patient and the prompt resolution allowed for ruling out other causes, and NPPE was the only remaining possible diagnosis... Thus, the authors considered to be unnecessary to proceed with the diagnostic investigation with other imaging methods and laboratory tests.

A: Posteroanterior chest radiographic image showing bilateral,coalescent, poorly defined opacities, characterizing the so called “butterfly wing”pattern, which is typical of alveolar process. The cardiac image is normal. Theseimages were acquired on the following day after tonsillectomy. The patient presentedwith mild dyspnea. B: Posteroanterior chest radiographic image acquiredthree days after the procedure. Complete resolution of the alveolar processdemonstrated on the previous images.

Mentions: A female, 28-year patient was submitted to tonsillectomy and developed respiratorydiscomfort immediately after the procedure. At the following day, posteroanterior andlateral chest radiography demonstrated coalescent, poorly defined opacities in both lungs,sparing the periphery and characterizing the so called "butterfly wing" pattern, compatiblewith a diffuse alveolar process. The cardiac image was normal (Figure 1A). Three days after the procedure, without any use ofmedication, radiographic images (same views) revealed the opacities disappearance (Figure 1B).
