Pulmonary capillary hemangiomatosis: radiographic appearance.

Lippert JL, White CS, Cameron EW, Sun CC, Liang X, Rubin LJ

Pulmonary capillary hemangiomatosis is a rare disorder that is characterized pathologically by formation of capillaries along alveolar walls that may ultimately invade the pulmonary parenchyma and pulmonary arteries. The clinic presentation overlaps that of primary pulmonary hypertension, but the natural history of pulmonary capillary hemangiomatosis is one of rapid deterioration. The typical radiographic appearance is a diffuse bilateral reticulonodular pattern associated with enlarged central pulmonary arteries.
