Chest radiology is highly variable:

  • most frequent pattern is one of bronchial thickening with areas of interstitial infiltration and subsegmental atelectasis involving one of the lower lobes
  • sometimes, there may be dramatic lower lobe shadowing in both lower lobes

Often, there is no correlation between radiologic appearance and the clinical state of the patient.
