Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The aim of this study was to describe CT findings of patients with bronchial anthracofibrosis.

CONCLUSION:

Atelectasis caused by smooth bronchial narrowing, surrounded by calcified or noncalcified lymph nodes, in elderly and nonsmoking women is a typical finding of anthracofibrosis. Calcified lymph nodes adjacent to the involved bronchi and multifocal involvement of bronchial narrowing may be helpful in differentiating this condition from lung cancer.
