It is considered the second most severe from (although not as severe as advanced destructive emphysema) and characterized by coalescent centrilobular or lobular lucencies with multiple regions spanning several secondary pulmonary lobules but not involving hyperexpansion of secondary pulmonary lobules or distortion of pulmonary (regional bronchovascular architecture).
