Scleroderma with NSIP


Subpleural cysts are features of NSIP, but compared to those of UIP, these cysts are smaller and limited in extent. The term "microcystic honeycombing" is used for these cystic changes in NSIP, as opposed to the macrocystic honeycombing seen in UIP.

Scleroderma patients tend to have NSIP changes rather than UIP in the majority.
