Sarcoidosis stage 4 shows minor fibrosis and increased upper lobe translucency (a). Another, advanced case of sarcoidosis stage 4 with fibrocystic, bullous, and emphysematous changes (b). 12. Characteristic HRCT finding in sarcoidosis are small nodules (a), or small nodules and consolidation along the bronchovascular bundles (b). In spite of gross radiological finding, both patients had no symptoms. 13. Pleural involvement in sarcoidosis. Plain radiograph of patient with chronic multiorgan sarcoidosis shows right-sided pneumothorax (a).

Honeycomb change is uncommon in NSIP (a cardinal feature of UIP). 3). Considerable overlap in HRCT patterns exist between NSIP and UIP. Within limited data, most studies suggest that NSIP is associated with increased lymphocytes and neutrophils in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid. These series noted no difference in the cell profiles between the patients with NSIP and those with UIP, although the predominance of T-suppresor cells is more suggestive of NSIP. It is impossible to differentiate NSIP from other IIPs using transbronchial lung biopsies.

4. Neutrophilic alveolitis is a most common finding in a patient with IPF. Predominance of neutrophils and lymphocytes, few macrophages and eosinophils. BAL fluid cytology, original magnification ×1000, MGG stain (May-Grünwald-Giemsa). 5. The histological hallmark and chief diagnostic criterion in IPF/UIP is temporal heterogeneity; alternating areas of normal lung, interstitial inflammation, fibrosis and honeycombing are seen. Scattered foci of proliferating fibroblasts “fibroblastic foci” (FF) are consistent finding.
