Diagnosis With Brief Discussion

Diagnosis
Idiopathic Bronchiolitis Obliterans Organizing Pneumonia (BOOP)
Radiologic Findings
Brief Review
BOOP is a clinicopathologic entity characterized clinically by a disorder with systemic symptoms such as cough, sputum and pathologically by the presence of granulation tissue within the respiratory bronchioles and alveolar ducts with patchy areas of interstitial inlammatory cell infiltration largely of mononuclear cells and foamy macrophages.
Typical high-resolution CT findings of the disease are bilateral areas of airspace consolidation (seen in 80% of cases) and ground-glass opacity (in 60% of cases), small, ill-defined nodules (30% to 50% of cases) at the subpleural and/or peribronchial regions. Honeycombing is usually absent.
