Architectural distortion of lung parenchyma caused by cystic bronchiectasis with predominant involvement of the lower lobes. There is a faint pattern of mosaic attenuation associated.
1 case question available
Lower lung predominant bronchiectasis, which is the most frequent pattern, is most commonly idiopathic. However, some cases have known causes, such as:
- recurrent childhood infections
- fibrotic lung disease
- rare causes like bronchiolitis obliterans from posttransplantation rejection is a rare cause of bronchiectasis-associated with patchy mosaic perfusion, air trapping, and bronchiolar obstruction. And hypogammaglobulinemia can also be a cause of lower lobe bronchiectasis, most often caused by recurrent infections
In this case, bronchiectasis are of uncertain etiology.
