ABSTRACT
Objective To study the X-ray signs of pulmonary lymphangitis carcinomatosa (PLC).Methods X-ray and HRCT signs of PLC proved by bronchoscopic or pleural or open-lung biopsy in 37 cases were retrospectively analyzed in order to find out some X-ray signs that suggested the PLC.Results The major X-ray features of PLC included:(1)Multiple thickened bronchovascular bundles in the bilateral lung in 37 cases;(2)Irregular thickened kerley A distributed over the bilateral lung in 28 cases;(3)The reticular and inosculating shadows(kerley C) extensively distributed over the bilateral lung in 19 cases;(4)The multiple irregular thickened kerley B distributed over the bilateral lung in 15 cases ;(5)Pulmonary hilar lymph adenopathy in 18 cases ;(6)Pleurae irregularly thickened in 16 cases;(7)Hydrothoraxes in 9 cases.Conclusion HRCT is the most satisfactory method in diagnosing PLC,but the super-quality thoracic plane film can supply some useful signs of PLC.
