Recently, there was a chest conference pertaining to the CT in Langerhan’s cell histiocytosis.
This 81 year old male presented to the emergency room with severe hypoxia. He had been a long-time smoker, and had been short of breath over the last year. A CT scan was done and images are below.
Do you think the CT scan is most compatible with 1) emphysema 2) idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis 3)pulmonary fibrosis with emphysema 4) end-stage langerhan’s cell histiocytosis 5) end stage sarcoidosis?
