Pneumocystis pneumonia

Case contributed by Dr Behrang Amini

Portable chest radiograph in a patient with pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) shows multifocal patchy opacities with diffuse reticular markings. These findings are nonspecific, but in the setting of a CD4 count less than 200 /mm3, should raise suspicion for PCP.
