Abstract

Interstitial lung diseases are very heterogeneous. We present a case of usual interstitial pneumonia pattern on high resolution computed tomography of the chest that was diagnosed successfully after multi-disciplinary discussion. Pulmonologists should be aware of the pitfalls in the diagnostic management of interstitial lung diseases, especially in cases with atypical clinical presentation and systemic signs and symptoms.
