HRCT scan of the chest of the same patient reveals bilateral consolidation and ground-glass pattern (b). Sixmonth therapy with corticosteroids and azathioprine caused regression of bilateral patchy infiltrates (c) and diminishing of restriction. Flow-volume curve shows restrictive pattern, with normal value of peak expiratory flow (PEF) resembling strong expiratory effort at the beginning of exhalation, followed with rapid graduate decrease of airflow, which finished earlier than normal. Significant improvement occurred after combined immunosuppressive treatment, with completely bigger flow-volume loop (d).

Sometimes wheezes, squeaks, or rhonchus with normal or bronchovesicular breath sounds.
