Figure 13: Axial CT scans on a 58-year-old woman with chronic fibrotic sarcoidosis (1 and 2) reveal bronchial distortion pattern with bronchovascular deformation, predominantly peripheral. The bronchi are angulated and irregularly dilated. Note the honeycomb - appearance at the lung bases. Unlike the typical subpleural cysts in sarcoidosis, this distribution is atypical and mainly the lung bases are involved. This distribution of honeycomb pattern may cause confusion with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
