Pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis with calcified pleural plaques

Lung India. 2010 Oct;27(4):250-2. doi: 10.4103/0970-2113.71967.


Pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis (PAM) is a rare disease. Herein we report a case of pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis who was suspected to have the disease on chest X-ray and was confirmed on high resolution CT and transbronchial lung biopsy. These investigations showed characteristic features of pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis with diffuse interstitial pulmonary fibrosis.
