Collapse Box


The increasing number and variety of patients with compromised immune systems poses a diagnostic challenge for the chest physician. Manifestations of pulmonary disease on imaging studies are diverse, with substantial overlap possible between entities. This article reviews radiologic findings in common disease states encountered when treating immune compromised patients and provides a framework for approaching common imaging manifestations, such as air-space consolidation, ground-glass opacities, and nodules.
