1. Patient presentation

  • A 74-year-old man presented with progressive cough and a recent episode of hemoptysis.
  • He had a smoking history of more than 40 years.
  • About 18 months earlier, he presented with progressive cough and dyspnea and underwent high-resolution CT of the lung that revealed multiple subsolid nodules with “tree-in-bud” pattern on the lower lobes. He was diagnosed with bilateral basal bronchiolitis and successfully treated with pharmacological therapy.
  • Now, this patient underwent a new high-resolution CT of the lung for diagnostic assessment.
