image of Pneumocystis jiroveci: HRCT scan in a patient with a normal chest X ray

Description

High-resolution computed tomograph (HRCT) scan of the chest of an HIV-infected patient, CD4 count of <200 cells/µL, who had a normal chest radiograph. Bilateral patchy areas of ground glass opacity are suggestive of Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia, which was microscopically confirmed by examination of induced sputum.
