Abstract

High resolution CT findings of pulmonary involvement are described in a patient with adult type Gaucher's disease. Although the reticular pattern on the chest radiograph was typical, appearance of pulmonary involvement on high resolution CT has not been demonstrated in the literature. High resolution CT demonstrated interlobular septal and intralobular interstitial thickening, irregular interfaces at the pleural surfaces and ground-glass appearance, corresponding to both the alveolar and the interstitial components of the pulmonary involvement.
