December Case of the Month

Clinical History: A 38-year-old man presented with progressive dyspnea. He was a sporadic smoker, who reported no significant past medical history. He worked in a shop, and had a parrot for more than 10 years. Three months prior to presentation, he developed dyspnea and was diagnosed with asthma, for which he began treatment, with clinical improvement. Two weeks prior to presentation, he complained of progressive dyspnea without wheezing associated with dry cough, and used bronchodilators again, this time without improvement. He also developed intermittent fever of up to 38ºC and sweating. A chest CT showed bilateral basal peripheral reticular opacities; which was interpreted as “cannot rule out interstitial pathology”. Five transbronchial cryobiopsies of different segments of the left lower lobe were performed, with a clinical differential diagnosis of “interstitial pneumopathy vs. atypical pneumonia”. Images of the biopsy findings are shown in figures 1-4.
