Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The objective of this study was to describe the high-resolution CT findings of a previously unreported rare complication observed in seven patients who had undergone lung transplantation.

CONCLUSION:

High-resolution CT findings suggestive of gradual progressive lung fibrosis, predominantly in the upper lobes with relative sparing of the basal segments, may represent a specific and rare type of rejection of still unknown cause in lung transplant recipients.
