The present study consolidates the hypothesis that diffuse lung involvement is a direct manifestation of NF-1. Furthermore, our results highlight that early onset, in childhood or adolescence, is possible even though not clinically evident and the kind of lesions that can occur in the paediatric population (air-filled sub-pleural lesions in the upper lobes) may arise before fibrotic basilar involvement.
