chest CT documents "ground glass" parenchymal areas located in the peripheral site in both lungs, larger on the left. In particular, in the the left upper lobe antero-lateral segment (where "crazy paving" pattern is associated), lingula, left lower lobe lateral segment and in the posterior segments of both lungs (subpleural sites). Other similar, more limited thickenings was identifiable in the left upper lobe apico-posterior segment, in the right upper lobe apical segment and in the right retroesophageal recess (at the lower lung lobe). The findings was compatible with medium-grade viral interstitial pneumonia. Collaterally, there was two nodular formations in the middle lobe lateral segment (7 mm), so we raccomanded follow-up at 3-6 months, in accordance with the Fleishner Society guidelines.
