represent dilated bronchi. Elsewhere, there are mild areas of bronchial wall thickening. The hilar and mediastinal structures are normal.


Multifocal pulmonary nodules, exhibiting features typical of lymphoma. The largest mass has increased in size. There are generalized airway changes bilaterally which may represent a combination of bronchiectasis and emphysema.
