|Imaging findings of pulmonary diseases in immunocompromised paediatric patients|
In immunocompromised children, chest radiography could be limited in diagnostic accuracy.
A CT examination is often required in order to demonstrate the presence of parenchymal inflammatory disease.
Although radiological findings are similar for each etiological agent, combining anamnesis and clinical features with various radiologic patterns could be important to reaching a correct diagnosis. Some CT features - such as cavitation, halo sign, reverse halo sign and crazy paving - may be helpful for radiologists, in order to provide a correct diagnosis.
